Welcome to the Third-Reich-Posters website where you will find an unrivalled selection of hard to find items.

The name is historical and goes back to when we solely sold posters relating to the Third Reich Era.

We have since developed way beyond this due to the expectations, needs and requests from our varied and worldwide customer base. The price of original period pieces is prohibitively expensive and the requirements for careful storage of them often mean they are unable to be displayed and that is where we are able to help with faithful reproductions or period pieces.

Our customer base includes, museums, military establishments, veterans, T.V prop departments, university libraries and private collectors who are looking for some extra context to add to their collection.

Our wide range of translated books gives the reader an insight into how and why the Third Reich was established and why things happened as they did.

Why do we sell Third Reich related items ? Well one major factor is that their is less competition. As sites such as Amazon and E Bay have banned such items from sale it has not lessened the demand for them and indeed it can be said by banning them they have made them more desirable and have created a larger cross section of interest in this specialist niche in the marketplace. The inability to purchase on these platforms has meant that people and institutions now come to us for these items. None of these items are intended, and nor do, they incite any form  of "hate" , "intolerance" or "violence". They are meant for academic and historical  study and if abused then that is due to the interpretation of the individual not the contents of the book. If you want to blame books and ban them from sale  then you had better start by banning the Tora, Koran and Bible all of whom have passages which could be said to incite hatred, misogyny, or intolerance in one form or another.

We do offer for sale a selection of Allied posters but as these are readily available elsewhere we do not see much demand for them, but we do still offer them for sale in the interests of diversity of opinion and balance. We did however have to stop selling the Churchill busts as in 5 years we sold 1 compared to over 100 comparable sized busts of Adolf Hitler, we do not stock what people do not wish to purchase.

We advance no political agenda other than freedom of thought and expression. If you dislike what we sell then feel free to take your business and political ideology, whether Red or Brown, elsewhere.

The history of, and leading up to, WW2 is forever and can not be denied. It is not yours, or ours, to erase, rewrite, tear down or deny !

The society we have today is the child of the past and it is what it is so act accordingly.

Super Re-creation of the Tapestry of SS-Obergruppenführer and Hereditary Prince Josias von Waldeck und Pyrmont


Out of stock



Here is a re-creation of the tapestry that hung in the office of a royal prince of a royal German house. Prince Josias was one of the earliest members of the SS, and one of the first of the royal lines to join the ranks of the Schutzstaffel. The Erbprinz (“hereditary prince”) had an extraordinary and varied career and enjoyed an especially close relationship with Heinrich Himmler. He was born in Arolsen at the ruling family’s castle, as the eldest son and heir of Prince Friedrich of Waldeck and Pyrmont, and his consort Princess Bathildis of Schaumburg-Lippe. He was the nephew of William II, King of Württemberg, and Emma of Waldeck and Pyrmont, Queen Regent of the Netherlands. He was badly wounded in WWI (including being a victim of a gas attack) and highly decorated receiving the Iron Cross First and Second Class and other decorations. He later volunteered for the Free Corps, (Freikorps) where he fought in Upper Silesia against the communists in 1919. Josias joined the Nazi Party in 1929, and the SS in 1930. He had married one of the sisters of the Hereditary Grand Duke Nikolaus of Oldenburg (1897-1970). Von Oldenburg’s two sisters married an SS major who was a prince of Schaumburg-Lippe; and SA Colonel Harald von Hedemann, making this a tight-knit circle of aristocratic NSDAP officials. During his first year in the SS, Josias became the chief of Himmler’s personal staff. Later, in 1933, he became the aide-de-camp of SS General Sepp Dietrich, who headed up Hitler’s personal security. That same year, he was promoted to major general (SS-Grüppenführer); this was part of his precipitous rise in rank. He also had a brief appointment as a counselor in the foreign office in 1933, and held a seat in the Reichstag throughout the era of the Third Reich. As of 1936, he headed the SS division of Fulda putting him in close proximity to Prince Philipp of Hessen, who was also an NSDAP royal and a high-ranking SA leader. Both Prince Josias and Prince Philipp were based in the city of Kassel. In Kassel, Josias created the Bureau for the Germanization of Eastern Peoples, which promoted the idea of SS-directed settlements in Eastern Europe. In 1939, he was appointed the higher SS and police leader in Weimar and in this capacity he had supervisory authority over the concentration camp at Buchenwald. The prince was also a general of the Ordnungspolizei (“regular police”) being personally appointed by Hitler in April 1941. Prince Josias was severe, hard driving, and ambitious. To cite an example, he oversaw an SS execution commando action at the Stadelheim Prison near Munich during the Röhm purge in June 1934, when he had to order the executions of several former comrades. It gave him no pleasure, but it was necessary to the future of the NSDAP, which he would defend with his own life, if necessary: “Wenn alle untreu werden, so bleiben wir doch true”: the  motto meaning: “If all become unfaithful, we remain loyal.” The city of Kassel was the main headquarters of the prince, but the SS-Oberabschnitt Fulda-Werra, headed by Josias, was in the town of Arolsen. The stately Arolsen Castle, which continues to serve as the family home of the former ruling family of the Principality of Waldeck and Pyrmont, is also located in Bad Arolsen. The innermost offices of Prince Josias were in the castle itself and the original of this tapestry that we offer graced the wall of his personal office in that regal castle. The symbol of the eight-pointed star—seen in different forms—is seen in the coat of arms of Arolsen; sometimes, the Waldeck arms are shown with a six-pointed star, but the prince chose to have the eight-pointed version on his personal tapestry. Note: the tapestry, like the famed Ahnenerbe example, has in its borders a series of geometric patterns that resemble a continuous pattern comprised of the letter “H” joined. Was this in honour of Heinrich Himmler? The background of the tapestry is decorated with alternating swastikas and  runes, while the Irminsul Ahnenerbe tapestry has in it a background with alternating N.S. eagles and  runics. We believe this is rather evidentiary that both of these tapestries were designed by the famed SS-Oberführer and Professor Karl Diebitsch, the originator of the SS Allach porcelain firm. So, dear collector, here is a chance to procure a great and accurate replica of a very important relic of the Reich.
