WWII GERMAN HITLER YOUTH CROSS BANNER -
This is a banner that was made in a Hitler Youth camp. It is of two piece construction where two banners have been sewn together. These are hand made banners. Not mass produced. The story is that the GI who brought them back found them on a Hitler Youth camp. They were inside a building hanging from the hand rail of a set of stairs. Every banner hanging there was unique and celebrated a different aspect of the German culture.

Albert Leo Schlageter, 12 August 1894 26 May 1923, was a member of the German Freikorps. His activities sabotaging French occupying troops after World War I led to his arrest and eventual execution by French forces. His death created an image of martyrdom around him, which was cultivated by German nationalist groups, in particular the Nazi Party. During the Third Reich he was widely commemorated as a national hero.
