Nazi/German Propaganda Poster

This poster shows the map of "Grossdeutschland," a term that means "Greater Germany." The terminology was used by the Nazis to mean the union of Germany and Austria, a union that was accomplished with the Anschluss (attachment) of Austria to Germany in 1938, one of Hitler's geo-political moves that led to World War II.

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 These posters are presented for historical reference only.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.
