Hermann Ehrhardt (x) was a German Freikorps commander during the period of turmoil in Weimar Republic Germany from 1918 to 1920, he commanded the famous II.Marine Brigade, better known as Marinebrigade Ehrhardt. His force participated in the unsuccessful Kapp-Lüttwitz Putsch of 1920, afterwards he fled Germany, but later returned. In Bavaria he formed the Organisation Consul, and later the Viking Bund, a secret military society. During the Beer Hall Putsch, Ehrhardt refused to have the league help Adolf Hitler's Nazi Party. Ehrhardt would later unsuccessfully contest the leadership with Hitler, but unlike their commander, most of Ehrhardt’s men joined the Nazi Party. Ehrhardt was one of those listed to die during the Night of the Long Knives but he managed to escape to Austria. He died in 1971 in Krems an der Donau.

the-seed-of-europe: The artist Reneé Sintenis and a Hot Sister ca. 1927. Hot Sister was generic Berliner slang for a lesbian, however Sintenis and her friend seem to be sporting the more specific attire of Bubis - “masculine or butch women [who] often wore male clothing, especially fedoras and leather ties. Recognized by their long leather coats in winter and ubiquitous cigars. Some Bubis sported delicately drawn ‘mustaches’ (imitating Spanish aristocratic women). Reputed to be the best automobile drivers in Berlin. Attracted to Mädis (ultrafemmes), who referred to them as Daddies” (Mel Gordon, Voluptuous Panic).
