Original Item: Only One Available. The Reich Labor Service Reichsarbeitsdienst; RAD) was a major organization established in Nazi Germany as an agency to help mitigate the effects of unemployment on the German economy, militarize the workforce and indoctrinate it with Nazi ideology. It was the official state labor service, divided into separate sections for men and women.
From June 1935 onward, men aged between 18 and 25 may have served six months before their military service. During World War II compulsory service also included young women and the RAD developed to an auxiliary formation which provided support for the Wehrmacht armed forces.
This is an early period steel and enamel sign in good condition, it retains all of its color and character with scuff marks around the edges. Exceptionally rare as any signs with reference to the Third Reich were removed and destroyed directly after the war.
Measures approximately 12 (30cm) round with a dome convex shape. Makes a great backdrop and display piece. Not often encountered!
