1930s Image of the Neue Wache

I’ve just acquired a new image of the Neue Wache, which was once the tomb of Germany’s Unknown Soldier. It takes the form of a printed postcard showing a group of German soldier’s marching past in salute. The postcard was posted in Berlin in April 1937 so puts it firmly in the Nazi period. The band appears to be a Luftwaffe one by the insignia on view and it may date from the hive of activity that took place in Berlin in 1936 during the Olympics.

  1. when you put politics into facts, they somehow get screwed up, I as a veteran of the united states Army and have heritage, lineage, and much more in Germany would have no problem with a tomb of the unknowns in Germany, as long as the SS was kept out of the mix, and the regular guys and woman who fought for a lunatic, were involved, it should be, who are we to judge the people who fought valiantly without the shadow of you know who hanging over them, for mother, father and family, I gave my Life.
