Included in this small group of leading Nazis are, from left to right; Heinrich Himmler (1900-45), head of the SS and chief of Gestapo. Behind Himmler stands Martin Mutschmann (1879-1947), Gauleiter of Saxony. The man standing in the doorway is Karl Weinrich (1887-1973), Gauleiter of Kurhessen. Beside Himmler stands Dr Wilhelm Frick (1877-1946), Reich Minister for the Interior. Adolf Hitler. Immediately behind Hitler stands Dr Joseph Goebbels (1897-1945), Minister for Propaganda. Julius Schaub (1898-1967), adjutant to Hitler. General Franz Ritter von Epp (1868-1947), Governor of Bavaria and Reich Leader of the NSDAP. On the extreme right stands Hermann Göring (1893-1946), chief of the Luftwaffe and Reich President. Bad Elster is a small town situated in southern Saxony close to the Czech border. This photograph was probably taken at the time of the provincial elections held in the region in June 1930, which resulted in the Nazis becoming the second strongest party in Saxony. Such early images depicting the main Nazi leadership together in this way, are quite rare.
