Gift parcels of the Wehrmacht
During the war years in Germany, to maintain the morale of soldiers, various additional rations were widely distributed, as well as various kinds of gifts from the homeland. From Germany to the front and to hospitals came a large number of different kinds of parcels on behalf of the Fuhrer.
The packages could include food, tobacco, cigarettes, socks, lighters, handkerchiefs, etc., etc.
Gifts were distributed by various public, military, or medical institutions, such as the National socialist welfare society (Nationalsozialistische Volkswohlfahrt), the German Red Cross (DRK), and many others.
Often, these packages were linked to some memorable dates or holidays, such as Christmas.
