Cross of Honor of the German Mother, First Class order in gold

A civilian order of merit established on 16 December 1938 to honor German mothers. The award was issued to Reichsdeutsche mothers and eventually extended to Volksdeutsche mothers.  The first mothers were awarded on 21 May 1939.

Three classes of order were created for the award:

First Class Order, gold cross - eligible mothers with eight or more children.
Second Class Order, silver cross - eligible mothers with six or seven children.
Third Class Order, bronze cross - eligible mothers with four or five children.

An estimated 4.7 million mothers received the award up until September 1941. A true number of awards issued throughout the award’s entire existence from 1939-1945 is not known as many records were destroyed in the Second World War.
