A ticket to the Day of the German Art parade (‘Tag der Deutschen Kunst Festzug’) issued for Sunday, July 16, 1939. This event complemented the Great German Art Exhibition inside the German Art House in Munich and celebrated ‘2000 years of Germanic culture’, which meant to stand in stark contrast to the Degenerate art. On the day of the parade, luxuriously draped floats, including a 5 meter tall golden Nazi Reichsadler, and thousands of actors in historical costumes paraded down Prinzregentenstraße in the presence of Adolf Hitler, Hermann Goering, Joseph Goebbels, Heinrich Himmler, Reinhard Heydrich, and many other high-ranking Nazis. The ticket features an original signature of its holder in blue pencil and shows a map of the event with marked entrances on the backside, also pictured is the Feldherrnhalle., 6 x 4 inches, fold in the center. Very good
