43-363 COLOR POSTCARD: GENERALFELDMARSCHALL PAUL von HINDENBURG. This is an excellent color postcard of Generalfeldmarschall Paul von Hindenburg (1847-1934). Hindenburg had a long and distinguished military career. He served in both the 1866 Austro-Prussian War and the 1870-1871Franco-Prussian War. In 1911, he retired while serving as a General der Infanterie in command of the 4. Armeekorps. As was the tradition upon retirement, he was promoted to generaloberst. With WW I’s outbreak, he was called back to service and appointed the 8. Armee’s commander. Under his leadership on the Eastern Front, the Germans dealt the Russians a major defeat at the Battle of Tannenberg. His continued success on the Eastern Front led to his promotion to Generalfeldmarschall in November 1914.
In 1916, von Hindenburg left his post in the East and assumed the German Army’s overall control as Chief of the General Staff. He was supported by his deputy, Eric Ludendorff, throughout this time period. After WW I ended, he retired for the second time in 1919. From 1925 into 1934, he served as the Weimar Republic’s President. A total of seven men served him as Chancellor during the period, with Adolf Hitler as the seventh, and most-notorious. [Upon von Hindenburg’s death, Hitler assumed overall control of Germany, not as President, but as Chancellor and Führer].
This color postcard is based on a painting of von Hindenburg. He appears in a feldgrau tunic, complete with the 1914 Iron Cross 1st Class on his left breast and the Orden Pour le Mérite at his neck.  On the postcard’s reverse is the notation that it was produced for the benefit of a veteran’s organization. It was not mailed.

Ein feste Burg ist Unser Gott.

He served during the 1864 Danish-Prussian War, commanding German and Austrian troops against the Danes. He helped to modernize the Prussian cavalry, and Küraßier-Regiment Nr 3 was named in his honor. He was an amazing old “war horse.” $15.00

Armee, der seigreiche Führer des ostpreußischen Korps (Commander of the 8th Army, the victorious leader of the East Prussian Corps). He was victorious in the Battle of Stalluponen, the Battle of Gumbinnen, played the decisive role in the Battle of Tannenberg, and won the First Battle of the Masurian Lakes. The Kaiser gave von François the command of the 8. Armee in October 1914, but he was relieved of it by Hindenburg and Ludendorff in early November (he was aggressive and successful, but frequently insubordinate). He was given command of the XLI Reserve Corps in December 1914. After spending time in the West, he returned to the Eastern Front in April 1915, where he continued to distinguish himself. He won the Pour le Mérite on 14 May 1915 for his performance in the breakthrough at Gorlice, and had the Oak Leaves attached to it in July 1917, for outstanding performance during the Battle of Verdun. $15.00

38-1266 RISQUÉ FRENCH PROPAGANDA POSTCARD - GERMAN "MACHINE-GUNNER." Without a doubt, this is one of the most entertaining postcards I have ever seen. It is really unique, and I do not use the term loosely in this case! The color postcard shows a German soldier, complete with his pickelhaube, pack and Mauser rifle, stooping beside a tree in a forest. He is clearly taking care of one of Life’s daily necessities. His face has a rather strained/pained look. If you look at his bottom, a string of sausages is coming out. Of course, I laughed when I first saw this, but I failed to notice the really humorous thing about the postcard. At the bottom of the card is a paper wheel. When one turns it, the string of sausages moves and disappears into the ground. It is quite clever AND vulgar. At the bottom of the postcard on the obverse is the legend "Mitrailleuse Allemande (German Machinegun)!!!" A penned English-language message is on the reverse, which does not appear to have been mailed.  (It is addressed to someone in a military hospital). This one is good for a laugh when you share it with friends and fellow collectors. $60.00 New Translation!!

43-68 POSTCARD - 1898 INDIAN ETHNO/ANTHROPOLOGICAL EXHIBIT-BERLIN. This postcard references an 1898 "living exhibition" put on by Carl Hagenbeck, featuring men, women and children from India in settings reminiscent of their homeland. It is captioned "Gruss aus Hagenbeck’s Indien-Berlin Tempelhofer Feld - Generalpächter Max Höpfner [Marinehaus SO.16] (Greetings from Hagenbeck’s India - Berlin Tempelhof Field - General tenant Max Höpfner [Navy House SO.16]). These exhibitions were extremely popular during the latter part of the 19th Century. They featured Lapplanders, Eskimos, Patagonians, native people from Europe’s various colonies in Africa, Asia, the Pacific islands, India, and South America, as well as Native American tribes. The exhibitions allowed the European masses to view these "exotic" peoples in replicas of their native habitat, wearing their native dress, and performing domestic chores, making carved tools, taking care of children, etc. (They were eventually superseded by motion picture documentaries in the early 20th Century).Carl Hagenbeck, a Hamburg fish vendor-turned-impresario, was known for importing and exporting wild animals to zoos and circuses around the world. (In the 1880's and 1890's, the Hagenbeck family was the chief animal supplier for Barnum & Bailey’s Greatest Show on Earth). In 1907 he founded the zoo in Hamburg-Stellingen, wherein he championed the recreation of natural, lifelike environments for his animal enclosures. Hagenbeck, along with other family members, also prospered with the"anthropological" exhibitions mentioned above."Hagenbeck’s Indien" was a spectacular exhibition staged off Berlin’s bustling Kurfürstendamm Boulevard in 1898. As one can see from the postcard, multistory buildings were constructed for it. Some of the Indian performers are posed in front of one such building, along with several German "handlers." Some of its exhibits featured Tamil und Indische Kinder (Tamil and Indian children), bajadères (female dancers), and "Indische Ringkämpfer" (Indian wrestlers). $20.00
