Background: After 1933, the annual Nazi Nuremberg Party Rallies were events of national, even international interest. Four rallies had been held before that, however: Munich (1923), Weimar (1926) and Nuremberg (1927 and 1929). The Nazis published a 62-page booklet to commemorate the 1927 rally, which was a milestone in Nazi history. The Nazis had recovered from Hitler’s imprisonment after the 1923 Beer Hall Putsch, and though still an insignificant movement nationally were able to bring tens of thousands of their followers to Nuremberg to put on a show that impressed Nazis from the provinces at least as much as it impressed the citizens of Nuremberg.
