Propaganda was central to Nazi Germany and the German Democratic Republic. The German Propaganda Archive includes both propaganda itself and material produced for the guidance of propagandists. The goal is to help people understand the two great totalitarian systems of the twentieth century by giving them access to the primary material. For further information, see the FAQ. New items are described in the GPA Blog.
My book titled Bending Spines: The Propagandas of Nazi Germany and the German Democratic Republic (Michigan State University Press, 2004) provides an analysis of much of the material on the German Propaganda Archive. It can be ordered in the United States through amazon. It is also available in a French translation. A Chinese edition appeared in July 2012 but was almost immediately banned by the Chinese government. It was apparently “unbanned” for a while, but I have been told that it is again banned.
