Bund Deutscher Mädel album (Rosenthal, Germany)

Document | Accession Number: 2016.253.1

Album, with title page of "Landjahrlager Rosenthal, 1941," and a photograph of an unidentified younog woman. The contents include handwritten texts with the following headings: "Worte für die Fahne," containing quotations from a variety of sources, including Hitler, Nietzsche, Himmler, Hölderlin, Frederick the Great, and Tolstoy, among others, and unattributed verses, "Der 9. November 1923," containing narrative texts and verses about the attempted coup by Nazis in Munich in 1923; and a variety of essays on other themes. The latter part of the book includes a mimeographed about race and genetics. The album appears to have been created at a camp for the Bund Deutscher Mädel in Rosenthal, southeast of Dresden, in the Erzgebirge.
