Annexations Commemoration Medals

Die Medaille zur Erinnerung an den 13. März 1938, 1. Oktober 1938 und 22. März 1939) 

Before armed conflict in Europe started with invasion of Poland, Third Reich successfully pursued territorial expansion by skilled diplomacy backed up by some bullying. In this way they annexed into the German Reich territories with ethnically German population, but not only:

  1. Austria being an independent country (14 March 1938) - Austria Annexation Medal Award Certificate

  2. Sudetenland being part of Czechoslovakia (1 October 1938) with subsequent upgrade - Prague Bar, when the rest of Czechoslovakia was taken (15 March 1939) - Sudetenland Medal Award Certificate

  3. Memel region being part of Lithuania (22 March 1939) - Memel Annexation Medal Award Certificate

All these events were commemorated by a medal received by the troops entering the region on that date and other politically active individuals who contributed to successful annexation. 

All award certificates can be personalized with the name / unit of the recipient of your choice (and more). They would make a great addition to your collection, display, or a present!
