Memorial album after the conclusion of the successful season of the play "De Stedinge" by August Hinrichs at the open air theater of the NS cult site "Stedingsehre" in Bookholzberg, County of Oldenburg, in 1937. The stage was exclusively built for this occasion. Hinrichs' play was written in 1934 to commemorate 700th anniversary of the battle of Altenesch between the victorious Stedinger peasants and the army of Archbishop Gerhard II of Bremen. The album concludes with a lofty verse by Alfred Rosenberg: for us the Holy Land is not Palestine but Germany, holy earth for us is where Germans defended it with their blood, where German peasant fists guided a plow through mother earth. Stedingsehre became a schooling center and a location for mass events of the NSDAP. Profusely illustrated with 73 extraordinary b/w reproduction of Nazi officials, Stedingsehre an surrounding area, the groundbreaking ceremony and open air theater, with and without audience. 49 photographs depict the cast of and scenes from the play, including vast panoramas of the audience, most of them with captions. Includes three brief texts credited to Adolf Hitler, Carl Röver (Gauleiter), and Alfred Rosenberg, the latter two with facsimile signatures. Text in German, Gothic script. Binding slightly rubbed. Binding in overall very good, interior in fine condition.
