Description: JOSEPH GOEBBELS
(1897-1945) Nazi Minister of Propaganda with Hitler from the earliest days, a master of manipulation of the masses who took his life and those of his family members in the last days of the war. Fine association I.S.P., 10 3/4" x 15" matted to 14 1/2" x 19 1/4", a fine three-quarter length seated pose of the Minister of Propaganda by noted photographers Sandau, boldly inscribed on the mount at bottom: "Hauptsturmfuhrer Gunther Schwagermann in grateful recognition of his steadfast loyal service". Nicely signed, dated Berlin, June 12, 1944. A few spots and trivial stains, more so to the mount which is slightly worn at bottom, a 1/2" tear at the margin of the photo and slight silvering but nevertheless a rare, oversize photo with lengthy inscription. GUNTHER SCHWAGERMANN (b. 1915) served as Goebbels adjutant from 1940, on. He personally escorted Magda Goebbels and her children to the Führerbunker, and assisted with burning the bodies after the suicides of Goebbels and his wife. In fact, Schwagerman may have ordered an SS man to finish-off Goebbels when the latter botched his suicide attempt.
