    ~ WW2 German Anti-Aircraft Warfare Helper Arm Band And Photo ~


    The set is comprised of a hand tinted photograph of a young boy in his German military uniform and his white cotton anti-aircraft helper arm band.

    The armband reads ‘Flakhelfer, Deutsche Luftwaffe’, bearing the Luftwaffe style eagle in the middle.

    ~ The Flakhelfer ~

    Luftwaffenhelfer'' (commonly: Flakhelfer = anti-aircraft warfare helpers) are terms commonly used for German students deployed as child soldiers during World War II.

    The Luftwaffenhelfer ("Luftwaffe assistant") program was the implementation of the "Kriegshilfseinsatz der Jugend bei der Luftwaffe" ("war auxiliary deployment of youth into the Luftwaffe") order issued on January 22, 1943.

    The order called for drafting whole school classes with male students born in 1926 and 1927 into a military corps, supervised by Hitler Youth and Luftwaffe personnel. The draft was later extended to include the 1928 and 1929 births.

    Deployment included ideological indoctrination by the Hitler Youth, military duties and limited continuation of the normal school curriculum, often by the original teachers.

    While the official term was "Luftwaffenhelfer (HJ)", the term more commonly used is "Flakhelfer" ("Flak-assistant"). The 1926–1929 births are commonly referred to as the "Flakhelfer-Generation".

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The width of the picture’s frame is 9.64 inches (24.5 cm), its height is 11.53 inches (29.3 cm) and its depth is 2 cm.

    The armband height is 4.52 inches (11.5 cm) and its diameter is 15.35 inches (39 cm).

    The set weighs 485 grams.

    The set is in good vintage condition. The armband is free of tears or any other damage.
