re: Need help to ID German booklet 1942

The top says "Unfallbekämpfung der Deutschen Reichspost", in english "German Reichs Posts fight againt accidents". Aound the Shield "Eigene Vorsicht- Bester Unfallschutz" = "Self Caution-Best Accident prefention". I would think they are a cinderellas for a campaign for accident prevention. I will see if I can find anything on some German web site.

re: Need help to ID German booklet 1942

Thank you OPA and Hockeynut for your information. It is always interesting to learn
something new.. I found this in a box lot along with a 50000 Mark note dated 1922. Which
show just how bad the inflation was in Germany that year.

Stamp collecting is such a catalyst for learning about history and other things..

".... 50000 Mark note dated 1922. ...."

By 1923 50,000 marks would not even pay for a postcard.

re: Need help to ID German booklet 1942

To fully understand how much this was, a German billion is not the same as an American billion. An American billion is 1,000 million, whereas a German billion is 1,000 times as much, in other words one million x one million = 1,000,000,000,000.

So this bill was 100,000,000,000,000 marks. Which of course is peanuts compared to the insane hyperinflation in Hungary in 1946 :-)

re: Need help to ID German booklet 1942

Here an article about the cost of a single bread in the hyperinflation in germany :



A Single Bread Costs 4.6 Million During Germany's Hyperinflation in 1923

The 1921-1924 hyperinflation happened mainly because of three things:
- the ongoing internal political instability in the country,
- the occupation of the Ruhr district by foreign troops,
- and when the Weimar (modern-day Germany) government printed too much banknotes to pay reparations after the 1923 French invasion.
Because the banknotes were not matched by Germany's production, their value fell.

In 1922, a loaf of bread cost 163 marks.
By September 1923, during hyperinflation, the price crawled up to 1,500,000 marks
and at the peak of hyperinflation, in November 1923, a loaf of bread costs
200,000,000,000 marks.
