    Lien van Eck presentation piece - European Youth Congress 1942

    I've sold this but the present owner was happy for me to post some pics.

    This is a presentation piece including case and presentation card given to the dignitaries who attended the first and last European Youth Congress in Vienna (Europäischer Jugendkongress in Wien) in 1942.

    This particular piece was for Lien van Eck who was the leader of the female wing of the Nationale Jeugdstorm. The stamp was not part of the set and was something I added later.

    Etienne gave me the following additional info on her:

    Herr full name is Carolina Gerardina van Eck,born 3 june 1912 in the Hague.She became a partymember in 1934. And indeed she was the national leader for the girls in the jeugdstorm.

    There is also a tinnie and apparently a smaller version of the plaque too.

    Nice tinny too!

    I still haven't checked the file about Lien van Eck and I'm waiting for a report she wrote on her behauvior in Germany in 1944. I did found out the following though: she was in january 1945 back in Germany and she died there in the 80's.

    Hi Garry,

    Do you know how many of them were given?

    And Bronnyd,

    Is that tinnie a difficult catch? are there any fakes of that one?

    Thanks both.

    Best Regards

    I'll look into it Antonio and will get back to you.

    Edit:

    There were leaders from 14 countries (15 including Germany) at the conference Antonio. They represented 44 million children and young adults aged between 10 and 18 years of age. So, a minimum of 14 of these large presentation pieces were issued but the number actually presented will be higher. A clue for this is that Lien van Eck received one so perhaps it was the case that all of the top leaders in the respective organisations (male and female) received one. I'll dig around and see if I have anything more.
