The iems in the section are some of the most historic and rare items in our collection. We hope to continue adding to this section as our collection grows
We are hoping to add a Sperry S-1 or Norden Bombsight to this section or possibly add a specific Army Air Force Equipment Section, so please help us by DONATING to our museum to make this happen.
WWII U.S. Letter from the Nuremberg Trials. I acquired this direct from the family years ago. The person who sent this home was a guard at the Nuremberg trials and had access to the cells.
Autographs Column One: Herman Goring, Hans Fritzsche, Baldur von Schirach, Joachim von Ribbentrop, Baron Konstantin von Neurath, Walter Funk.
Autographs Column Two: Alfred Jodl, Arthur Seyss Inquart, Albert Speer, Fritz Sauckel, Alfred Rosenberg.
Below is on the reverse side of the letter:
WWII U.S. Passes from the Nuremberg Trials. These were used by Bradford Tucker during the Nuremberg Trials following WWII. One pass allowed you into the palace, the other allowed you access to the prisoners. There were very few of these access passes issued and were usually turned in when you left.
WWII U.S. War Bonds Poster. Lawrence Beall Smith, an artist known for his lithographs of children, created the poster titled “Don`t Let That Shadow Touch Them.” It was printed in 1942 for the Government Printing Office for the U.S. Treasury NARA Still Picture Branch.
WWII U.S. Souvenir Flag from the Japanese War Crimes Trials. This Flag was acquired from the prison guard who brought this home. He bought the flag as a souvenir and then had the prisoners sign it. All 25 prisoners on trial signed it. Unfortunately, the way it was stored caused some fading.
