This is a nice original period Willrich postcard 'Hauptmann Witzig' - nahm in kühnem Handstreich das starke belgische Fort Eben Emael und hielt es bis zum Eintreffen der Infanterie. The postcard is showing a portrait of 'Rudolf Witzig', a German Fallschirmjäger (paratrooper) and recipient of the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross with Oak Leaves. This propaganda postcard was published by the 'Verlag: Volksbund für das Deutschtum im Ausland' in Berlin W 30. The postcard measures approximately 15 x 10,5 cms in size and is in good used condition. There's a message written at the back dated January 21st 1943. Nice and decorative original postcard!
