I came across this harmonica, and remembered seeing a pamphlet from the Museum in Trossingen.

So I thought you might get a kick out of seeing the harmonica, the pamphlet, the translation and the response from the Nazi party.


1st the Harmonica:



Now the Pamphlet:


Now the Translation: "Raise the Flag is a harmonica in keeping with today's political transformation.  It was really tough getting it into production so quickly, but we were able to do so and produce a fine product that will sell itself, and we have plenty of them, so sign up now"


And Finally, The Party Response:  They were unhappy that the insignia depicting the flag and swastika were produced on the "lowly" harmonica, and insisted that Hohner discontinue making them. Because there was only a few made, they are very rare.
