German Propaganda Archive Calvin University


Background: the Gauleiter were regional Nazi party leaders, whose rule in their areas was almost absolute. They regularly spoke, generally to large audiences. This page of speeches and articles by them will grow slowly — it’s not always easy to find their work, but I expect the page will expand over time.

The GPA has a page of photographs of Gauleiter, often showing them delivering a speech.
