Hitler's Cross of Honor of the German Mother

Gold Mother's Cross - Silver Mother's Cross - Bronze Mother's Cross

The Ehrenkreuz der Deutschen Mutter (in English: Cross of Honor of the German Mother), often referred to simply as the Mutterehrenkreuz (Mother’s Cross of Honor) or Mutterkreuz (Mother’s Cross), was a state decoration and civil order of merit conferred by the nazi government of the Deutsches Reich (German Reich) to honor a “Reichsdeutsche” (Imperial German) mother for exceptional merit to the German nation.

Many social programs were implemented by Hitler to encourage the growth of a strong German Nazi Volk.  One such program was to advocate the virtues of motherhood.  This program included a gigantic Nazi propaganda campaign to urge women to increase the size of their families. Cash incentives were paid for each child born. On the 16th of December 1938 Hitler instituted a new award to honor German Nazi motherhood, especially the large family.  The cross of Honor of the German Mother (Ehrenkreuz der deutschen Mutter) was created in three classes with the criteria as follows:

Bronze 3rd Class Mother's Nazi Cross - A bronze Christian Cross normally worn about the neck suspended by a 10mm blue ribbon with two white stripes at each edge. A round shield was affixed to the cross, bearing the inscription 'Der Deutschen Mutter' encircling a black enamel Nazi swastika on a white enamel field. Behind the shield and between the arms of the cross was a projection of rays. The arms of the cross were blue enamel with white enamel edges. The reverse was plain save for the date '16 Dezember 1938' followed by a facsimile of Hitler's signature. From 16th December 1938, when the decoration was first instituted, to mid 1939, Nazi mother's crosses bore the inscription 'Das Kind adelt die Mutter' (The child ennobles the mother). Why this change on the reverse of the cross was brought about is not known. The manufactures logo was sometimes found on the back as well. This award was normally presented in a blue envelope bearing the title of the award on the front. The award was also accompanied by a large certificate bearing a facsimile of Hitler's signature.

Silver 2nd Class Mother's Nazi Cross - similar to the 3rd class Mother's Nazi Cross except that the metal parts were finished in silver. It was presented for bearing 6 to 7 children.

Gold 1st Class Mother's Nazi Cross - again similar to the 3rd class except all the metal parts were finished in Gold and also it was presented in a hard presentation case that consisted of a hinged and compartmentalized box. The exterior was a very dark blue simulated leather with a facsimile of the award embossed in gold. The interior of the lid was a white satin and the base was an off white velvet. It was presented for bearing eight or more children.

When the award was first instituted approximately 3 million women qualified for one of these awards. Only families of German origin qualified. Females from Danzig, Austria and the Sudetenland were eligible when these teritories were absorbed into the Greater German Reich. Awards were rendered only on 'Mothering Sunday' (Mothers Day) the second Sunday in May. The first awards were rendered on the 21st May 1939, and the last awards were presented in 1944.

In addition to being worn about the neck, the Mothers cross was also worn in its full size suspended from a bow, and attached to the lapel. A miniature either suspended from a bow or made into a brooch was also authorized. All three Nazi Mother's Cross classes were identical in size (35mm wide by 42mm high) and design, and were the creations of architect Franz Berberich.
