Martin Bormann Record Collection Hitler Berghof Marked Record
Martin Bormann Silver  

Martin Bormann Phonograph Record Album Collection Items

The record albums shown on this page are a portion of the massive collection of music assembled by Martin Bormann and stored in his underground bunker under his house located in Berchtesgaden at Obersalzberg.  The phonograph record albums were "liberated" by Captain J. T. Schwidde, a US Army doctor assigned to Company D, 3rd Medical Battalion, 3rd Infantry Division.  This is a photo of Captain Schwidde in Class A uniform, and another photo in fatigues sitting in one of Hermann Göring's chairs outside the ruins of his home in Berchtesgaden in May 1945, just after V-E Day.  There are six individual V-Mail communications from 1945 referencing the records and more that document his acquisition of war bootie from Hitler, Göring, Bormann, Goebbels and others with homes in the area.  There are also a number of photographs of him in and around the area.

There are also several newspaper accounts detailing the collection of records, including the specific details of his discovery and acquisition of the records and albums.  Some are shown at the links below:

Some of the records are marked with inventory stickers on the labels.  Some of the albums have Bormann's Reichsleiter hand stamp and notations in his handwriting describing content.  Many of the albums are classical, recorded (or pressed) in the late 1920s.  Several operas -- mostly Wagner -- are available.  There is also ONE record that was from the Berghof (Adolf Hitler's collection) marked by a tag and handstamp on the label.  There is one recording of Deutscheland, Erwache! with Das Hackenkruez on the reverse side.

We will show photos and specific details as known about each over time.

There are also several broken albums available that were damaged in transit from Germany to the US.  They are priced somewhat lower than the intact records.

The condition of the albums is generally good.  They have a number of scratches and dust from the passage of time and handling.  Most of the records are over 75 years old and not suitable for playing on modern turntables.  They are recommended for framing for a static display rather than for the artistic content.

Prices vary by condition and relative desirability.

A limited number of multiple record album hard cover sleeves are available.  Most have Bormann identification and markings either on the spine or on the interior cover.  The ELECTROLA red cover album that is clearly visible in the newspaper photos linked above is shown here.

This section is going to take some time to populate. Please check back often.

MBRA-01 This is a Telefunken recording of Deutschland, Erwache! on one side and Das Hakenkreuz on the other.

The pressing is not dated, nor does it have identification markings other than the standard TELEFUNKEN factory labels.  The record was pressed with a "Made In Germany" in English (the record apparently intended to be eligible for export).

It measures 10 inches in diameter and is probably a 78RPM, although not marked.  This is a close-up of the label from the front and one of the reverse.

The baritone singer is Gerhard Huesch accompanied by the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra.

This is a very scarce original recording and in very good to near excellent condition.  It appears to be playable if properly cleaned.

Martin Bormann Silver Service, etc.


Martin Bormann used a very distinctive eagle emblem on his official silver service. It closely resembles the Hitler eagle, with the differences being in size (Bormann's are always smaller, sometimes VERY small) and no letters or initials at the sides of the wreathed swastika.

Small eagle shown above.  It measures about 3/4 inches across.

Larger eagle shown above.  It measures about 1-1/4 inches across.
