Price: $23.00

Part of the Leibesubungen & Schule series of books for German elementary school students which is sometimes mistaken as a Hitler Youth- Third Reich publication. There is a photo of a young boy giving the straight-arm Hitler salute, but it is in reference to the signal "halt" which is to be used in an outdoor game. Since the boy is clad only in gym trunks, the identification as a HJ becomes more obscured. This book series was in fact used by the Hitler Youth in it's very early years, as well as by other child organizations, and does have the look and feel of a Third Reich text book. It is 100-pages with many b/w photos and diagrams showing how a certain game or exercise is performed. Written by head gymnastics instructor Johann Marker, of the Berlin-Schneberg area in 1929. Great cover. VF
