Background: This page has a collection of posters advertising Julius Streicher’s early meetings, including one from before he joined the Nazi Party in 1922.
Source: Julius Streicher, Kampf dem Weltfeind. Reden aus der Kampfzeit (Nuremberg: Verlag Der Stürmer, 1938).
This advertises a meeting in 1922 organized by one of Streicher’s pre-Nazi parties, the Deutsche Werkgemeinschaft. The theme is one of the favorite anti-Semitic canards: the claim that 300 people rule the world, based on a statement by Walter Rathenau that was taken considerably out of context. This mysterious group is out to enslave the world. “The truth must come out!” the poster proclaims.
|“The truth must come out!” This poster advertises an early Streicher meeting in Munich. According to the text: “The mysterious poisoning of two working girls in Nuremberg by a Jewish attorney received no punishment in court. The acquittal has aroused great uproar in the entire population.” This is an early example of Streicher’s focus on alleged Jewish sexual crimes.|
|Streicher was already something of a Nazi celebrity by early 1923. This poster advertises a meeting in Ingolstadt in January 1923. The theme is simply “National Socialism.” The swastika is reversed, a mistake that wouldn’t happen often in the future.|
|Throughout the 1920s Streicher was active in Nuremberg city politics, making life as difficult as possible for the city government. The theme of the meeting: “City Hall and National Socialism.” Note the price of admission: 300 marks. May was at the early stages of the great German inflation of 1923.|
|This poster advertises an August 1923 Streicher speech in Vienna. Streicher’s announced theme is “Germany in its deepest degradation.”|
|This 1924 poster announces a meeting of the “Großdeutsche Volksgemeinschaft,” the name the Nazis used while Hitler was in prison. The theme: “Jewish electoral swindle.”|
The Nazi Party was reestablished in 1925 after Hitler’s release from prison. This poster advertises a 1926 meeting by Streicher with the theme: “The Battle for our Rights.”
|This meeting was held shortly before Hitler took over power on 30 January 1933. The theme: “The Jews and von Schleicher’s government!”|
