ORIGINAL THIRD REICH WHW CHARITY CAMPAIGN MEMENTOES OR WINTERHILFSWERK ABZEICHEN

THIS IS PAGE 3 OF 3 PAGES OF WHW MATERIAL

In Nazi Germany the Winterhilfswerk (Winter Charity Campaign or WHW) collection campaigns took place each winter and raised a great deal of money for charitable purposes. It was common practice for those who collected the contributions to give donors a small memento to show appreciation for their contribution, and by wearing the memento it was obvious the donor had contributed money.

Some WHW mementos are superb pieces of art, some printed booklets and others are very simple. Some include semiprecious stones and some are beautifully embroidered. All have been collected since the day they were made and are very much sought after today. Each lot is priced separately so be sure to order by lot number only. If you order two lots you may deduct $4.00 from the order total, if you order three lots you may deduct $8.50 from your order total.
