    Overview

    Brief Narrative
    Pin issued for a 1933 Christmas charity drive in Germany. It was probably issued by the Winterhilfswerk Des Deutschen Volkes, the major public charity established by the Nazi Party in 1933. In addition to fundraising, the organization was used by the Nazi regime to promote Volksgemeinshaft, a sense of of community among the German people. They often issued pins and badges for donors to wear to show their support.
