Nazi/German Propaganda Poster

This image is a painting by Paul Mathias Padua, titled "10 mai 1940." It was first shown at the "Deutsche Kunst Ausstellung Im Haus der Deutsche Kunst Berlin 1941" (German Art Exhibition in the House of German Art Berlin 1941). The scene is German soldiers crossing the Maas river in the Netherlands on the day of the German invasion of Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg. This image was used on posters, postcards, and other Nazi publications during the war.

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 These posters are presented for historical reference only.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.
