That's an ambiguous question. Help you with what? Do you want people to help you find out where to buy them? That should be easy on the Internet. Or, are you hoping that people will just GIVE them to you ? If you want people to give them to you, where ARE you? Who pays the postage?

Do you see how your question is very incomplete?

If you know enough German, a search for Physics textbuch in Amazon.de should get you some hits with some page samples.

Schoolbooks are usually not very good these days. I was shocked looking at some German physics high-school books for the "Oberstufe", i.e., grades 11-13. You have to look at older editions to get a good book. The book, I learnt for my Abitur exam was

Metzler, Physik (1989)

The same book in the edition of 2008 is still ok but way lower in level and in my opinion has lost a lot of the logic still present in the old edition. The edition of 2014 (for Nordrhein Westphalia) makes me very sad, to say it friendly.

I don't know, how books for the lower grades are these days.
