BDM Fencing Competition Award Certificate

Year: 1936
Decade: 1930s
Century: 20th (1901-2000)
Notes: Nov. 8, 1936

An award citation to fencer Freidel Strack, certifying that she won four matches with foil, and will advance to the district-level competition.

The certificate is illustrated with an image of two women fencing. In the Third Reich period, most physical activities for girls were performed under the auspices of the “Bund Deutscher Madel” (“League of German Girls”), or BDM, and it is very likely that Strack was a member of this organization.
