Lot 50x Third Reich/Hitler photographic collector cards, Austria indoctrination
Third Reich propaganda in collectible cigarette cards: set of 50x minature (63 x 48mm) photographic collector cards of the series called ” Hitler’s Path to Greater Germany “, published by the Austria Tabakwerke company, circa. The cards here include images of Hitler in his childhood; Hitler, Goebbels, Arthur Seyss-Inquart and other figures; political/military events of the the 1920s & 1930s & more. The cards were distributed solely on the Austrian market , in packets of a popular cigarette brand called’Korso’. The cards were distributed inside the cigarette packages and were to be mounted in a large, long, elaborate collectors book, obtainable for 1 Reichsmark at tabacconists, called’ Wie die Ostmark ihre Befreiung Erlebte’ (“How the Eastmark [Austria’s name after the Anschluss] experienced its liberation”). The book featured a multicolored cardboard cover and contained 96 pages of text and space for the 312 cards issued in the series to be pasted in – the cards in this lot have not been pasted; most are in good, preserved condition ; a few have creases and scuffs. The book was anonymously written and organized into 14 chapters based loosely on Hitler’s biography and rise to power. A researcher of this subject writes that Hitler’s personal photographer, Heinrich Hoffman, edited the images (a few also look doctored). The production was short-lived as on 1 May 1942, the production of cigarette cards was discontinued due to wartime paper shortages.
