Tag der Arbeit by PsykoHilly Tag der Arbeit by PsykoHilly
My father died in last December and we try to sort his collection of keepsakes. I think he retained this medals in memory of his father (killed in action 1944), so  they had only 8 years together.

This is not nazi support, I uploaded it for historical reasons only.

In April 1933, the recently installed Nazi government declared 1 May the "Day of National Work," an official state holiday, and announced that all celebrations were to be organised by the government. Any separate celebrations by communists, social democrats or labour unions were banned.

It's a good reminder of how the Nazi regime used propaganda and tried to give themselves a good image ~ they did similar with the Reichsarbeitdienst( original - Freiwilliger Arbeitsdienst) which had been a job creation program started by the Weimar Republic ~ I found a folder and a medal for the organisation here in Ireland ~ when the Nazi's took power they placed a party member in charge and basically stuck a Swastika on all the arbeitdienst symbols
