Photos from The Thousand Week Reich


Gestapo officer Ludwig Kessler in Vienna, 1946. Kessler originally served in Belgium but was recalled to Vienna following the end of the war. Although this change was officially a result of a routine personnel shift, his diary frequently mentioned a Luftwaffe officer that he frequently butted heads with.

Runa Eichel of the League of German Girls at the time of her defection to the Swiss resistance in 1955. Runa witnessed a Heer artillery strike on a small town near Zurich as revenge for a sniper attack on an SS convoy. Disgusted and disillusioned, Runa fled and was found by a resistance cell that operated near Lake Zurich. Although initially suspicious of her, Runa's willingness to fire on German soldiers convinced them of her honesty and she served with the cell until Switzerland was freed. During her time in the resistance, she grew close to a Jewish demolitionist named Hugo Mazer and married him after the fall of the Reich. Runa would occasionally taunt captured Nazi Party officials and SS personnel by behaving suggestively toward Hugo.

A Nazi Party official in Bavaria during a visit to a local brewery, 1945. The celebrations of Germany's victory over the Soviets prompted mass scale celebrations throughout the Reich, with the celebrations in Munich bringing in three million people. Providing beer for so many people was such a monumental task that local party officials had to go from brewery to brewery and place massive orders in advance in order to cater to everyone. Hugo Strelitz, who was an apprentice brewer at the time, recalled that a party official came to his brewery and checked on the status of a very sizable order that was meant for the victory festivities. Upon being told there may be a two day delay, the official 'turned as pale as candle wax.'
