Reich Federation of Jewish Front Line Soldiers Stickpin

DATE
Century: 20th (1901-2000)

The Reichsbund jüdischer Frontsoldaten (“Reich Federation of Jewish Front-Line Soldiers”, RJF) was an organization of German Jewish soldiers founded in February 1919 by Leo Löwenstein to demonstrate Jewish loyalty to the Reich. The goal of the organization was to stop the spread of anti-Semitism based on the argument that Jews were disloyal to the countries in which they lived.

The Reichsbund further regarded the Germany as the mother country of all German Jews. The stickpin was worn by a member of the RJF. The group’s activities were outlawed by the Nazi government in 1936, and in 1938 it was dissolved.
