Excellent commercial photograph album prepared as a souvenir of the rejoining of the Saar region with Germany in January, 1935. The 12 3/4" x 9 1/4" album bears a gilt title and contains within 89 photos, all but one of which measures 4 1/2" x 3 1/4". The images portray the celebration of the return of the Saar per conditions set forth in the Treaty of Versailles. They include: the British occupiers marching in the city as huge crowds offer a Nazi salute; scenes of the plebiscite; various signs and banners, along with a bloated figure of a "Jew" who is burned in effigy, members of the S.A. marching before Hitler; Josef Burckel following his appointment as Reichscommissioner of the Saarland; photos of Goebbels, Himmler, and ranks of SS soldiers participating in the post-reunification events; the city lit-up in celebration, and more. Covers are worn and soiled, contents are in fine condition.
