Lot 285: SECOND WORLD WAR – Hitler Youth. An important typescript with ms. insertions and corrections prepared by Karl Bierwirth, a member of the Hitler Youth who lived in Moringen. The typescript chronicles an expedition which he and other members of his Hitler Youth Group undertook between July 22 and August 4, 1939 – only a few weeks before the outbreak of the war. The typescript is accompanied by approximately 53 original photographs and 18 postcards. The location of Moringen is significant in that there was a Youth Concentration Camp in the town which operated from 1940-45, and leaders of the Hitler Youth were involved in operating it. The typescript also makes reference to "S.S. Manner", who had connections to Himmler, Dachau and Buchenwald.
