Our compassion is for the family and the comrades.
We mourn for three firefighters
At operations during the storm Friederike three German firefighters were killed in the past week.
We mourn with the families and comrades.
The collection Germany has been split
For a better overview, the area Germany was divided into the sub-areas "German Reich", "Weimar Republic", "Third Reich" and Federal Republic of Germany ". The already existing part of the German Democratic Republic was included here.
Due to the paragraph § 86 StGB (Federal Republic of Germany) I would like to clarify some things:
On my website are various photographs of firefighter helmets or objects, which are provided with insignia of the 3rd Reich.
According to § 86 StGB, the swastika is a forbidden sign.
With the badges I show, I neither pursue the goal of propaganda for the right-wing scene, nor do I want to score by showing the characters.
That's why I explain:
The symbols shown here do not meet the criminal offense according to § 86 and 86a StGB.
It should be noted that the representation of the shown helmets of the 3rd Reich done in connection with the German fire department history.
Thus, the badges serve the teaching of current affairs.
They therefore comply with § 86 (3) and are therefore not a criminal offense.
Today we had a very nice visit from the USA. Joe Brown and his wife Bonny are from Lincroft NJ. I met Joe in 2004 when I took part at the Steuben Parade in New York with my Fire Department.
We had a very nice conversation and looked at the helmet collection. Of course, Joe also discovered the helmet of his fire department.
