The Wolfsangel (wolf’s hook) is a very interesting rune used by the Nazis. It does not belong to any runic tradition. Wolfsangel was a device used to trap wolves. Many also believed it to have the magical power to ward off werewolves. It can be aligned either vertically or horizontally. In National Socialist Germany the Wolfsangel was used by the SS, the Sturmabtelung, the Hitlerjugend and a group known as the Werewolves.
Following the end of World War II, National Socialist Resistance fighters, called Werewolfs, carried out guerilla actions against the occupation forces in Germany . The Werewolves were an underground organisation of die-hard SS officers, Hitler Youth and Party members who carried out operations against both military targets and civilian collabarators. The movement, founded by Heinrich Himmler in 1944, helped to delay the first democratic election under occupation until 1947.
This bracelet then embodies this spirit of resistance whilst surrounding by the protection of the runes enclosing it.
