German Propaganda Archive Calvin University

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.

This is part of a larger site on German propaganda. For further information, see the site FAQ.

Adolf Hitler:

Pictures from the Life of the Führer

Dedication by Hermann Göring: “My F¨uhrer, 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 F¨uhrer, is expressed in the hundreds of thousands of eyes before you.

An entire people, an entire nation feels strong and happy today because you came to this people not only as the F¨rhrer, but also as a savior.”

[Göring’s statement is taken from a speech at the 1935 Nuremberg party rally.]
