    HI Alois, We never had any such HJ in Switzerland.
    Richard showed me this book when he got it in last weekend, for me though, its ... very...expensive :-/

    I remember that Lothar Hartung had a few Items from Gustloff, around 2006-7 i got a nice grouping from him, also with the Sig. of Gustloff twice as well as other items, for less than half the price of this.
    The people i know who collect NS-Schweiz related items are only interested in Parteibücher and CH-NS org. badges.

    Alois, i talked to a few friends who collect this "Swiss" stuff, and none of them ever heard about special HJ triangels or anything like this. Is there nothing mentioned in the Large HJ-Book by Wim?

    I have a reference here to a 1943 report from the RJF Auslands- und Volkstumsamt showing that Switzerland had 44 HJ-Standorte in that year. The HJ-Landesjugendführer were:

    Nov 1938 to March 1942: Bannführer Heinz Heinemann

    From March 1942: Oberbannführer Heinrich Bieg and Mädelringführerin (later Bannmädelführerin) Hilde Bohnert

    Switzerland started the process of classifying and then deporting fascists and national socialists in early 1945 when it became clear that Germany was about to fall. Here's a good document on that which lists Landesjugendführer Heinrich Bieg (kicked out in July 1945) and the names of some of the previous HJ-Standortführer: click
