National Anthem of Germany (1933-1945) - "Horst Wessel Lied" (Co-Official)

Published on Nov 22, 2020
"Horst-Wessel-Lied" (English: "Horst Wessel Song"), also known by its opening words, "Die Fahne hoch" (English: "Raise the Flag", lit. '"The Flag High"'), was used as the anthem of the Nazi Party (NSDAP) from 1930 to 1945. From 1933 to 1945 the Nazis made it the co-national anthem of Germany, along with the first stanza of the "Deutschlandlied". Since the end of World War II, "Horst-Wessel-Lied" has been banned in Germany and Austria.
The lyrics to "Horst-Wessel-Lied" were written in 1929 by Sturmführer Horst Wessel, the commander of the Nazi paramilitary "Brownshirts" (Sturmabteilung or "SA") in the Friedrichshain district of Berlin. Wessel wrote songs for the SA in conscious imitation of the Communist paramilitary, the Red Front Fighters' League, to provoke them into attacking his troops, and to keep up the spirits of his men.
