During the Weimar Republic (1919-1933), the government had instituted a public day of mourning to commemorate the war dead. Under the National Socialists, this holiday was renamed to “Heldengedenktag” (Day of Commemoration of Heroes). The new name corresponded more closely with Nazi ideology – the emphasis was no longer on mourning and the avoidance of future wars but rather on heroes and the glory of the fallen. The “Heldengedenktag” was just one of many examples of the National Socialist glorification of the sacrifices made by soldiers. The holiday was always celebrated on the Sunday that fell five weeks before Easter.
