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. I'm beginning a page of speeches and articles by them. This 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.
