The March 13, 1938 Commemorative Medal

Instituted on May 1, 1938, the medal commemorated the return of Hitler’s homeland to the German Reich. The move was the first in Hitler's quest for "Lebenraum", and it strengthened German flanks while weakening those of Czechoslovakia. German troops crossed the border on March 12, 1938, without meeting any resistance. The stage had been set by a series of "incidents" provoked by National Socialists in Austria, and diplomatic pressure and ultimatums set forth by the German Government. This first action, while perhaps raising suspicions, did not cause general alarm in the world community. After all, it seemed to be done by choice of the Austrian people who were German speaking.

The medal, known as the first "Anschluss medal", was awarded to all those Austrians who contributed to or participated in the annexation as well as the members of the Austrian NSDAP. It was also awarded to German State officials and members of the German Wehrmacht and SS who marched into Austria.

The March 13, 1938 Medal was based on the 1938 Party Day Badge. On the obverse it featured a tall standing figure holding a swastika banner (Germany) helping another figure who had broken shackles (The freed Austrians) onto a podium stand which had the Wehrmacht Eagle and represented the Greater German Reich (all three "Flower War" Medals had the same obverse). On the reverse center it had the inscription "13 Marz 1938" with the slogan "Ein Volk, Ein Reich, Ein Fuhrer" (One people, One State, One Leader) surrounding it. This was a favorite propaganda slogan that had much appeal and it was used repeatedly in Hitler’s speeches to represent the unification attitude of the time.
This Medal was dye struck, which gave it smooth edges and a high degree of detail. It was produced from brass or tombakbronze in with a mat silver finish. The ribbon that held it was red with white-black-white edges. Presentations stopped on December 13, 1940, at which time 318,689 had been awarded.

When worn it was placed as part of a group for formal occasions, or in a ribbon bar for active duty individuals.

The honor cross 1914-1918

First of the many awards instituted by the Third Reich, the "Eurenkreuz des Weltkrieg" was established on July 13, 1934, by President Generalfeldmarshall von Hindenburg (therefore it also known as the Hindenburg Cross). The Cross, which commemorated those who served (and fell) during the Great War, was introduced as a way to reinforce pride in the veterans, and current armed forces. The only military commemorative award to be introduced during the Third Reich era, it was created by Eugene Goted, who received the commission from the Reich Chancellery.

Claudiu1988, when copying text from a website, you are supposed to mention that you took it from there. Otherwise it is plagiarism and it's against forum rules.
