Nazi Era Kraft durch Freude Cruise Menu with Madeira Guide – Original with swastika branding
Another item from the lot I acquired at auction in Germany this menu card from the Lloyd Bremen line KdF cruise ship also comes with an original guide for tourists for the stop over at Madeira. Nice KdF branding with swastika in sun wheel.
Kraft durch Freude (KdF, literally “Strength through Joy”) was a large state-controlled leisure organisation in the Third Reich, a part of the German Labour Front (Deutsche Arbeitsfront – DAF), the national German labour organization at that time. Set up as a tool to promote the advantages of National Socialism to the people, it soon became the world’s largest tourism operator of the 1930s.
Famous for organising cruises pre war for the benefit of German workers these items are a nice example of Nazi home front propaganda – rarely seen on the market for sale and quite collectable
