N011272 DAF FESTIVE UNIFORM. (Festanzug der DAF)

BACKGROUND: The Deutsche Arbeitsfront, (German Labor Front), originally founded in 1933, became an official NSDAP organization in October 1934. Its stated purpose was to educate the workers in industry and commerce for smooth and efficient operation of all labor in the Third Reich. The structure of the DAF was basically the same as the NSDAP with different political levels of organization. Due to the diversification in labor the DAF was divided into sub-sections for specific trades and/or professions and it also controlled the Kdf, Kraft durch Freude, (Strength through Joy), organization which provided recreation for workers. However the DAF’s most important goal was to enforce the political stability of the large mass of the work force. One of the sub-sections of the DAF was the DAF-Werkscharen, (DAF-Labor Squads). The Werkscharen were established in February 1935 and were to act as the NSDAP’s "watch-dog", in industrial factories. In June 1935 the Werkscharen were granted independent status and uniform regulations were enacted.
