NSDAP convention of the Ammerland district (1939)

NSDAP convention of the Ammerland district (Bad Zwischenahn / 1939)

Link to the video: https://collections.ushmm.org/search/catalog/irn1004782

I stumbled across this video, taken in 1939 in my hometown of Bad Zwischenahn.
Unfortunately without sound, but I recognized all the places, many people, the circumstances of the time...

19 minutes of time travel back to an evil time.
When the film was announced, it was a huge topic in the local press, not without reason...
Ostfriesland / Ammerland was one of the strongholds of very early National Socialism.

P.S. I wish grandma and grandpa could have seen this movie, unfortunately not.
Everything you see there, that has always been denied.
There were no Nazis, only democrats, no one had been there after 1945...

Hans Kreynschmidt, later nicknamed "Pop" remebered very often:
The worst SA people were the farm boys from Kayhauserfeld,
the worst rabble that one could imagine.
The whole family were Nazis, when they were drunk, the boys beat everything down, regardless of losses.

We always ran away, sometimes we fucked the Nazis, but they became more and more...
After the war, Hans took his family to Australia, fathered three sons, and returned to Germany decades later, the man was fed up with the old crap.
A liberal man, an anti-Nazi, almost always drunk, but a man full of important wisdom.
"Pop" knew exactly what he remembered.

RIP Pop


Hans
