An Archive Of Letters Herman Goering And His Wife

 GOERING, HERMAN
[NAZI GERMANY]. Archive of 78 items congratulating Hermann Goering and his wife, Emma, on the birth of their daughter, Edda, in 1938. HERMAN GOERING (1893-1946), a noted World War I flying ace, rose through the Nazi ranks to become the second most powerful man in Germany, only answering to Adolf Hitler. Goering was at the height of his popularity with the German public when his second wife gave birth to their only child. This event was highly publicized and resulted in a torrent of cards and letters from well-wishers. The items in this group are of varying sizes up to 8” x 10” and degrees of quality, ranging from simple penned notes to embossed full color cards. Many of the greetings, be they from Party officials or grandmothers, close with “Heil Hitler!”. One post card in particular stands out in that it shows the familiar needle and globe from the 1939 New York World’s Fair. Datelined Flushing, Long Island, the card was written by a German- American who was probably a member of the pre-war Bund. Another signed “The heavily wounded in war Max Kierling, Heil Hitler!” On the back of a cherub angels greeting with hearts: “We wish that your little girl turns out like you: So German, So true, and So loved, like you. Dear Uncle Herman, could we please visit and see your little child…Dear Uncle Herman, Please say Yes!” Found with this was a note that read: “Cards and letters from a German Castle Taken by a pilot during World War II”. Each greeting is housed in its own sleeve along with a translation. Overall Very Fine.
