The sign in the first picture reads "Enter the something"
Kampfgeibets?????? How about Kampfgebiets (battle field).
Perhaps "Entrance to the battlefield" would be more appropriate: Eingang des Kampfgebiets

AK47s are cool but I would not dress up like abdullah mohammed to reenact the current war!

There is no more aesthetically pleasing uniform than the Allgemeine SS uniform, and the market speaks, for $8K-$10K you can buy an original hat.
If I were lucky and had my relative’s uniform that fought under Theodore Eicke of the Totenkopf Division been passed down, I would be pleased to display it, or reenact with it, it is a smart looking uniform for sure.
