After the war the city of Markneukirchen became part of the German Democratic Republic and the Brehmer company began production of East German militaria under a new name; Präwema (PRÄgeWErkzeugMAchinen) Praegewerk Markneukirchen GMBH. The “new” company produced awards in the original Brehmer factory which had not been damaged during the war. There are stories of a massive haul of Third Reich militaria, including rare numbered Army General Assault and numbered Panzer Assault badges discovered behind a false wall in 1988; all reportedly seized by the STASI.

Unteroffizier Friedrich Hiß fought with the 23rd Panzer Division when he was awarded his Army Flak Badge. He also received the General Assault Badge, Wound Badge in Black, and both the Iron Cross 1st Class and Iron Cross 2nd class.
