Nazi/German Propaganda Poster

This Nazi Party poster was used in 1938 to extoll the achievements of Hitler and the NSDAP in escaping from the hated Versailles Treaty that was imposed on Germany at the end of World War I. The poster was probably used in Austria for the plebiscite held 10 April 1938 to ratify the forced re-unification of Austria with Germany. The headline reads, "Steadily Adolph Hitler has torn up the dictates of Versailles." It then lists accomplishments year by year, starting with 1933: "Germany withdrew from the League of Nations" and 1934: "Rebuilding of the Army, Navy and Air Force Started" and so on through to 1938: "German-Austrian Reunification carried out. Greater Germany realized!" And on the bottom, "Therefore all Germany embraces its liberator Adolph Hitler on April 10. All say: Yes!"

The posters in this collection were created by the Nazi political party or the Nazi government of Germany during the 1920s through 1945. They depict the Nazi themes of the racial superiority of Germans, the subordination of the individual to the collective state, the hatred of the Jewish people and others considered enemies, the supremacy of Hitler, and the glory of service in war to further their aims.

The Nazi regime was vile and repugnant, responsible for suffering and death on a vast scale before and during World War II in Europe. The Nazis were discredited and destroyed at enormous cost to humanity. These posters are presented for historical reference only. No endorsement of Nazi ideas is implied or intended by this display.
