[float=left][/float]A programme for the German Select XI v Aston Villa match played in Berlin 15th May 1938, in German and titled Aston Villa in Deutschland, recently sold at auction for £210 (10.05.2011)

This game was played the day after the infamous England international in Berlin. But unlike their national counterparts the Aston Villa team refused point blank to give the Nazi salute before the match, and for good measure defeated a team packed with German and Austrian internationals.
