This was a unique marking worn by Jehovah‘s Witnesses (then known as International Bible Students) in the concentration camps. This particular onehas striped cloth on the Armband with the Purple Triangle shown on it.
SEE PHOTOS. To my knowledge, all the pieces I have up for sale are genuine World War 2 era items. I have taken MANY PHOTOS from ALL ANGLES to give you a DETAILED inspection of each item I have on sale. I want you to be able to see them up close and know what you are offerding on.
In the next week I am putting on sale Armbands and pieces of clothing from Witnesses who were victims of the holocaust. These are from my personal collection. Some of these items are EXTREMELY RARE. Here is helpful information on these items: I have had a very big interest in speaking about the holocaust. I do educational programs that educate children and adults on the holocaust, so that they understand how and why these terrible atrocities occurred, and how this type of thing can be avoided in the future. By 1939, 6,000 Jehovah’s Witnesses were in concentration camps, notably in Auschwitz and Dachau. I am not sure which camps these armbands were worn in.
Some years back I began collecting articles from the holocaust World War 2 era.They came from East Germany.
I made an honest attempt to get these items looked at by experts. However, to get even one piece authenticated to the point of being absolutely sure, costs thousands of dollars. I was not able to get this type of authentication done. You will have to decide if this item is something you would like to own. It is very rare to find such items on or anywhere else.
I want to state clearly that I believe these items to be authentic. I used them for years in my presentations to help my audiences see personally items used in World War 2. However, they do NOT come with any authentication certificates. I ask you to decide if you want to own these items or not. I leave this up to you.
IMPORTANT: Payment is to be made within 24 hours of sales end. I will allow buyers of these items 3 days to inspect the items. If you do not like them, you can return them for a full refund. However, I DO NOT guarantee anything beyond this first inspection by the buyer. If you want to offer on these, then I welcome your offers. After the 3 days, then the SALE IS FINAL. No returns after this time period. If you feel this is fair, then I invite your offers. If not, then please do not offer on these items.
Shipping in the U.S. is $15.00 with delivery confirmation for the first item, $5.00 shipping for each additional item (this is in regards to the armbands and pins I have up for sale). I ship internationally. Shipping to any other country is $30.00 for the first item, $15.00 for each additional item. All insured.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The items I have on sale are very important articles of history. They help us remember the past, which helps us so that we do not repeat it. These items are to be used for educational purposes only. I have the impression that these items are of MUSEUM grade. I personally condemn the atrocities done against the Jews and Jehovah’s Witnesses (then called International Bible Students).These items honor the memories of those whoStood Firm Against Hitler and the Nazi Party andall that they represented.
Please check out my other items that I will be posting in the next week.
Please feel free to ask any questions you might have.
