METAL HEIDECKSBURG CASTLE BADGE

BELONGED TO GERMAN PRISONER OF WAR

German Soldiers in WW2 wore a Winterhilfswerk
“Talisman” with names and symbols of German cities, Towns and occupied
countries. Many also had metal badges from their homes cities, towns and places. The
profits from sale of these “Talisman”  were for poor people in winter (for
coal, warm clothes, food), and, after 1941, for warm uniforms for Wehrmacht on the Eastern
Front. Many soldiers wore these Winterhilfswerk tags with the names of the towns which
they came from along with ID/Dog-Tags.

Heidelberg  is a the fifth-largest city in
the State of Baden-Württemberg in south-west Germany and part of the densely populated
Rhine-Neckar Metropolitan Region. Heidelberg lies on the River Neckar in a steep valley in
the Odenwald. A former residence of the Electoral Palatinate, Heidelberg is the location
of the University of Heidelberg, well-known far beyond its and Germany’s borders.
Heidelberg is a popular tourist destination due to its romantic and picturesque cityscape,
including Heidelberg Castle and the baroque style Old Town. .

The 24th Roman cohort and the 2nd Cyrenaican
cohort (CCG XXIIII and CCH II CYR) built a fort in 40 AD.  The Romans then built and
maintained permanent camps and a signalling tower on the bank of the Neckar with  a
wooden bridge based on stone pillars across it. The camp protected the first civilian
settlements that developed. The Romans remained until 260 AD, when the camp was conquered
by Germanic tribes

Modern Heidelberg can trace its beginnings to the
fifth century. The village Bergheim (Mountain Home) is first mentioned in that period, in
documents dated to 769 AD. Bergheim now lies in the middle of modern Heidelberg. The
people gradually converted to Christianity. In 863 AD, the monastery of St. Michael was
founded on the Heiligenberg inside the double rampart of the Celtic fortress.

During the Nasi regime (1933–1945),
Heidelberg was a stronghold of the NSDAP, the strongest party in the elections before 1933
(the NSDAP obtained 30% at the communal elections of 1930. The NSDAP received 45.9% of the
votes in the German federal election of March 1933 (the national average was 43.9%).
Non-Aryan university staff were discriminated against. By 1939, one-third of the
university’s staff had been forced out for racial and political reasons. The non-Aryan
professors were sent off in 1933, within one month of Hiler’s rise to power. The lists
were prepared beforehand.

Between 1934 and 1935, the Reichsarbeitsdienst (State labor service) and University of
Heidelberg students built the huge Thingstätte amphitheatre on the Heiligenberg north of
the old part of Heidelberg, for Nasi (NSDAP) and SS events. A few months later, the
inauguration of the huge Ehrenfriedhof memorial cemetery completed the second and last
NSDAP project in Heidelberg. This cemetery is on the southern side of the old part of
town, a little south of the Königstuhl hilltop. During WWII and after, Wehrmacht soldiers
were buried there.

During the Kristallnacht on November 9, 1938, Nasis burned down
synagogues at two locations in the city. The next day, they started systematic deportation
of Jews, and sent 150 Jews to Dachau concentration camp. On October 22, 1940, during the
“Wagner Buerckel event”, the Nasis deported 6000 local Jews, including 281 from
Heidelberg, to Camp Gurs concentration camp in France. Within a few months, as many as
1000 of them (201 from Heidelberg) died of hunger and diseases. Among the deportees from
Heidelberg, the poet Alfred Mombert (1872–1942) center the camp in April 1941 thanks
to the Swiss poet Hans Reinhart. From 1942, the deportees that had survived internment in
Gurs where deported to Eastern Europe, where most of them were murdered.

On March 29, 1945, the Wehrmacht center the city after destroying
three arches of the old bridge, Heidelberg’s treasured river crossing. They also destroyed
the more modern bridge downstream. The U.S. Army (3rd Infantry, 7th Army) entered
Heidelberg on March 30, 1945. The civilian population surrendered without resistance.

Though History denotes the facts of the Brutality
and Horror of the nasi Regime and War machine, many Germans, faced with dim prospects of
the depression, multiplied by war reparations caused by the German folly of WWI,
joined the military believing they were doing the right thing. Many of these young
soldiers, as well as Officers, were ultimately slaughtered by the Third Reich. Hundreds of
thousands died on the field and, ultimately, in the  Russian Gulag.

IMG_1173.JPG (184172 bytes)

We chose this original photo because it depicts
German officers and enlisted men in 1940, the year when the all consuming Blitzkreig began
and a Victory of a sorts permeated the peoples of Germany, when the educated as well as
the illiterate were lead to believe they were superior to the world, when they were
celebratingwhat they believed to be their moment on the world stage.

NOTE:

The US transferred 6,000 German officers to the Sachsenhausen concentration camp that now
was under Soviet Union administration. The US also shipped 740,000 German POWs as forced
laborersto France. The U.S. also  chose to hand over several hundred thousand
German prisoners to the Soviet Union in May 1945 as a “gesture of friendship”.
One million German prisoners died in the Soviet camps between 1941 and 1952
