Kronenkreuz oval stickpin of the Inner Mission charity

Object | Accession Number: 2006.483.1

Crowned cross [kronenkreuz] oval pin issued by the Central-Ausschuss fur Innere Mission [Central Committee for Inner Mission] of the Protestant Church in Germany to people who donated to their charity organization, the Inner Mission. The Nazi regime, which governed Germany from 1933-1945, limited the church's fundraising activities to an annual Volkstag der Innere Mission [National Day of Inner Mission]. The mission would collect money on the street and go door to door seeking donations on this day. The pin shows the Kronenkreuz (crowned cross), the official sign of the Inner Mission.
