Nuremberg Rally Souvenir

Catalog No. 5191

Stoneware, relief, 0.5L, pewter lid, marked �WEKARA�.

�Stadt der Reichsparteitag/N�rmberg�
(City of Nazi Party Day/Nuremberg)

Each year between 1927 and 1938 the NSDAP (National Socialist German Workers� Party or Nazi Party), held a convention in the city of Nuremberg. These were largely propaganda events designed to energize the faithful, and in the years leading up to World War II attracted over half a million participants.

The image on the left side of the stein depicts the Bratwurstgl�cklein (Bratwurst Bell), today a popular tourist venue for enjoying the local Nuremberg bratwurst, but with strong historical links to the Nazis, in that during the 1920s it served as a regular meeting place for leaders of the infamous Sturmabteilung (Storm Troopers or SA), the party�s paramilitary enforcers, often referred to as the �Brownshirts�.

On the right side is Nuremberg�s landmark Henkersteg (Hangman�s Bridge), so named because the tower on the bridge served as the the home of the local hangman, who was segregated from the general population because his trade was considered �dishonest� and contact with him would result in exclusion from the Christian community.

�WEKARA� is an acronym for Wilhelm E. Krumeich aus Ransbach, a Westerwald finishing shop and distributor.

Price Range: $125-$175
