Thought that I would try to liven things up a bit.

Here are three pins from my collection relating to the Newspaper Hambuger Tageblatt, which existed from January 1st 1931 until August 31st 1944. The paper had been formed by the merger of two other newspapers, the Hamburger Volksblatt & the Hansische Warte which was funded by the Deutschnationaler Handlungsgehilfen Verband, known to many Third Reich enamel collectors as the DHV.

Until the National Socialists came to power, the paper used the slogan "Den Staat zerstört man nicht, man erobert ihn" roughly translated as "You don't destroy the state, you conquer it" as a subheading under the Masthead. Once the National Socialists were in power the subheading was changed to "Amtliches Organ des regierenden Bürgermeisters der freien und hansestadt hamburg", "Official organ of the Governing Mayor of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg". Then finally changing to "Zeitung der Nationalsozialistischen Deutschen Arbeiterpartei", "the Newspaper of the National Socialist German Workers' Party".

Initially the Newspaper was based in a building near Katharinenkirche, but in 1939 it moved to a purpose built building designed by Rudolf Klophaus in Spearsort in Hamburgs Altstadt. The building had a relief on the west side of the building of the papers motif, a ship with a Swastika on the sails. Hamburg suffered extensive damage due to allied bombing & the building was badly damaged but seems to have survived the war as the motif was de-nazified in 1946 & can still be seen today.

The Hambuger Tageblatt's symbol changed slightly between 1933 & 1944. Originally simply a ship with a Swastika on the sail in a black circle, changing at some point (probably in 1939 when the paper relocated) to the black circle being encased in a rhombus or diamond.

Here are the pins.
