This book catalogs over 1,200 different items given 
for charitable donations to 17 different groups within
Germany from 1933 to 1945. These items are
displayed in over 1,150 color pictures. The items
represented in this book fall into two major categories.
The first category includes items from organizations
other than the Winterhilfswerk des Deutschen Volkes
(WHW). The second category includes items given out
in the name of the WHW by surrogate groups. These
groups and the number of items cataloged are:

Non-WHW organizations:
Deutsche Jugendherbergwerk (DJH): German Youth
Deutsches Luftsportverband (DLV)
Deutsches Rotes Kreuz (DRK): German Red Cross
Volksbund für das Deutschtum im Ausland (VDA)
Bergwacht: Mountain Rescue
Deutscher Flottenverband
Hitler Jugend Plastic Athletes
Innere Mission
Mutter und Kind
Volksbund Deutsche Kriegsgräberfürsorge

Surrogate groups:
Opferschiessen für das WHW
Tag der Deutschen Polizei für das Winterhilfswerk
(TdP): German Police Day for the WHW
Tag der Wehrmacht für das Winterhilfswerk
(TdW): Armed Forces Day for the WHW

The tokens distributed by the organizations in both
categories often are identified by buyers and sellers
as WHW items, so these items often are generically
referred to as WHWs. This book does not cover the
WHW National or Gau collections unless these National
or Gau items fall into the surrogate group category.
The National WHW items can be found in
"Winterhilfswerk National Street Collections and More:
A Collector’s Guide."
