Happy Mothers Day!
The German country recognized mothers before the end of WW2 with "Ehrenkreuz der Deutschen Mutter" or 'Mother’s Cross of Honor'
An honor for all mothers to help build a strong nation. The German mother received a gold if 8+ were birthed and raised by their family unit. Bronze cross of honor was given from 4-5 children, and silver cross given for 6-7 children birthed and raised.
These medals were given out and officially recognized from 1939 to 1945
