    Biography
    Felix Albrecht was born on July 6, 1900, in Darmstadt, Germany. He served in World War I as an operating engineer from 1917 through 1918, and was discharged with the rank of sergeant. Beginning in 1925, he studied at the Staatliche Hochschule für bildende Künste in Berlin. After finishing his art studies in 1927, Albrecht found work as a freelance artist, illustrator, book decorator and writer. On May 27, he became a member of the National Socialist German Workers' Party (NSDAP or Nazi Party), member number 62,499. He worked as a poster designer for the Nazi Party and in 1930 joined the Schutzstaffel (SS). By the end of 1931, Albrecht was working for the Reich Propaganda Directorate, designing graphic posters, postcards, and illustrations for books. Throughout the 1930s, Albrecht worked in various internal Nazi Party agencies as a graphic artist and reached the rank of Hauptsturmführer (head assault leader) in the SS. In 1941, he was part of the Officers Corps of the SS-Kraftfahrschule (driving school) in Vienna. After World War II, Albrecht was captured and held by the Soviets until 1949. After his release he returned to Berlin. Felix Albrecht, aged 80, died on July 27 1980.
