Nazi/German Propaganda Poster

This poster epitomizes propaganda by associating powerful, positive images with an idealized Hitler. The glorious light and descending dove evoke Christian symbolism of the Messiah while the masses of loyal Nazis in the background anoint Hitler as their natural leader and the Nazi party as the one true faith. The slogan, "Es lebe Deutschland!" means "Long Live Germany!"

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 These posters are presented for historical reference only.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.
