German Mothers Cross Medal
german mothers cross medal

The Cross of Honor of the German Mother (a.k.a. Mother’s Cross) was an award of the Nazi Regime. It was instituted on December 16, 1938, as part of Adolph Hitler’s initiative to encourage the growth of the Aryan population. Only women of German origin qualified for this award which was given annually on the second Sunday in May (Mother’s Day). Mothers were honored in three different classifications depending on the number of children they had borne. Eight or more children would entitle the woman to a gold cross, six or seven for silver, and four or five for bronze. The obverse design of the Mother’s Cross depicts a round shield affixed to a cross bearing the inscription “Der Deutchen Mutter” encircling a black enamel swastika on a white enamel field. The cross is in blue enamel with white enamel edges. The reverse features an engraved date of December 16, 1938, along with a facsimile signature of Germany’s infamous Fuhrer.
