"Learn from the past, protect the future."
Adolf Hitler is widely considered the most notorious tyrant and mass murderer in world history. As the leader of Nazi Germany, he orchestrated both World War II and the Holocaust, events that led to the deaths of at least 40,000,000 people. On September 1, 1939, Nazi Germany invaded Poland. While this was the event that formally started the Second World War, it was not the first act of aggression by Adolf Hitler. In 1936, Nazi forces occupied the Rhineland, the German industrial center that had been a demilitarized zone since the end of WWI. A year later, the Luftwaffe participated in the bombing of Guernica, Spain, to help the Fascist General Francisco Franco in the Spanish Civil War. Germany annexed Austria in 1938, and in 1939, occupied Czechoslovakia. This set contains coins that circulated in those four areas during the 1930s, mapping the path of Hitler’s destruction. Comes in a mini-folio with story card.
National Collector's Mint will donate a portion of the proceeds from each set sold to the Holocaust & Human Rights Education Center of White Plains, NY.
