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.

Tapestry of the -Totenkopf “Oberbayern”


Out of stock


DESCRIPTION: Here we offer a splendid tapestry that commemorates the SS-Totenkopf-Standarte 1 “Oberbayern,” which was formed from SS-Sturmbann Oberbayern in Dachau in 1937. During that year’s Reichsparteitag, it received its Deutschland Erwache standard. The skull (“Totenkopf”) is the reminder that you shall always be willing to put yourself at stake for the life of the whole community. Use of the “Totenkopf” as a military emblem began under Frederick the Great in the 1730s, who formed a regiment of Hussar cavalry in the Prussian Army. Outstanding notables who wore the “Totenkopf” symbol were August von Mackensen, Crown Prince August Wilhelm, and Heinrich Himmler. Two Sturmbanne of this unit entered the Sudetenland (Czechoslovakia) before the rest of the troops to support the Freikorps Henlein and prepare for the German occupation. It was used for “police duties” during the invasion of Poland behind the lines of the 10. Armee between Upper Silesia and the Vistula-Oder Offensive. These duties consisted of hunting down the remaining Polish soldiers and partisans. Most of the “Oberbayern” unit was used to create the “SS-Totenkopf” (3rd SS-Panzer Division “Totenkopf,” an elite division of the Waffen-SS) and the remaining were used to form the SS-Totenkopf-Rekreuten-Standarte. Famous commanders of these units were SS-Oberführer Theodor Eicke, SS-Standartenführer Otto Augustini, and SS-Obersturmbannführer Max Simon. Manpower in April 1938, was only 3,335. The insignia in the cuff title was the text “Oberbayern” and was authorized for this unit and was in use until September 1938, when it was replaced by a cuff title with the “Totenkopf” symbol (the same symbol was displayed on the collar tab). Our tapestry traces the same exact lines and design as the cuff title. This magnificent tapestry is BIG measuring 178cm x 137 cm. The cotton weave is excellent with two different textures for outstanding depth and dimension giving it this impressive appearance. It is washable in cold water. All four sides are lined with fringe in black and white colours. Wherever you place it, on a wall or used as a bedspread, this super tapestry will be a brilliant focal point to your collection.
