Horst wessel lied (Rare Version) - YouTube

Horst-Wessel-Lied - National Anthem of Germany 1933-1945, later forbidden by the German authorities. Goebbels promoted it as one of two national anthems

Horst Wessel (October 9, 1907 – February 23, 1930) was a German Nazi activist and an SA-Sturmführer who was made a posthumous hero of the Nazi movement following his violent death in 1930. He was the author of the lyrics to the song "Die Fahne hoch" ("The Flag On High"), usually known as Horst-Wessel-Lied ("the Horst Wessel Song"), which became the Nazi Party anthem and, de facto, Germany's co-national anthem from 1933 to 1945.
