Background: There are a number of illustrated books published
during the Nazi era. They were large books in which one pasted photographs
received as premiums. This one, published in 1936, was devoted to the
deification of Adolf Hitler. My copy of this one brought the number of
copies in print to 2,450,000. The illustration on this page is the dust
jacket cover. There is a
full English translation, complete with pictures, of this
book in print.

Pictures from the Life of
Dedication by Hermann Göring: “My Führer,
we are not able to express our thanks to you in words. Nor are
we able to prove our loyalty and affection for you in words.
All the thanks, the love and the burning confidence in you, my
Führer, is expressed in the hundreds of thousands of eyes
An entire people, an entire nation feels strong and happy
today because you came to this people not only as the Führer,
but also as a savior.”
[Göringís statement is taken from
a speech at the 1935 Nuremberg party rally.]
