Museumsprojekt Heimat e.V. is a recently formed association in Germany and although we are the only association in
Germany to form a Waffen-SS group as our main impression, we are more than that and do have impressions from
various other periods as well.


Image

Our main impression is the Florian Geyer SS Cavalry unit.

Image

Not all of our private events revolve around "Battles", some of the time we are active with clearing up and building projects.

Image

In a very short time we have got everyone looking the same, not an easy task for a new group

Image

Sometimes some of us are called on to play "Enemy Forces" for the main group. We are each wearing three trousers and two pullovers
under the uniforms, it was that cold.

Image

It may look like "Scott of the Antarctic" but it is our tents in sub-zero degrees!

Image

My first time at Waterloo, 32nd Regiment of Foot (Cornwalls)

Image

Three members of our association are active in this unit

Image

We are involved with various museums in Germany and mainland Europe, here we are at the Panzermuseum Munster

Image

Inside the main building at the Panzermuseum.

Image

Some of our friends, the NVA Group from Eastern Germany reenacting the 70s-80s..

Image

The German Home Front is also represented, during a museums open day.

Image

Sometimes we are not in "uniforms", but doing some sort of research projects, this photo was taken at the Wannsee Conference
building in Berlin.

Image

Both of these fellows have work with us in the past and are our latest additions. "Britanicus" in the foreground can be seen wearing
the British WW2 uniform in the 4th photo.

This has been a small insight into what we do, thanks for taking the time to look.

Cheers, Bill.

Thanks for your interest, oh, not mentioned in the post, we have several
members of a German Wehrmacht Volksgrenadier group as well.

We have a very busy 2012 ahead of us, so, busy, busy, busy.

Cheers, Bill.

Hello Bill,

Was trying to get the definitive answer on what is and isn't allowed as far a reenacting German units in Germany. Are there issues with wearing siegrunes, swastika flag waving? Tried to ask in another thread but no one appeared to know the answer!

You seem to be best person to ask! :D

Bill seldom visits as his energies are focussed on real world activities and not the petty arguments and sniping he endures from Germans opposed to his legitimate activities with museums and historical projects.
However - if you peruse some of the less "spoiled" threads concerning re-enactment in Germany you will find the answer to your question - Indeed Bill's photos are self explanatory - Museumsprojekt Heimat wears, when necessary and in context, full insignia to give an accurate portrayal of the subject in hand. Gratuitous wearing of the Hakenkreuz however is streng verboten in Germany.

Do it at a bona fide event with a museum etc. and it's fine. Do it in the street or to make a political statement and it's a no no.

Thank you Paul for answering the question for me, you were spot on with your answer.

Yes, we are a legally recognised Verein (Association) within Germany and Hoffman Grink
has already mentioned that we do museum work.

Cheers, Bill.
