German Propaganda Archive Calvin University


Background: This is an experiment to see if anyone finds it useful. I'm putting four German city maps from 1938, along with the street indexes, on this page. It allows one to see how the Nazis re-named streets and public squares in many German cities. The maps are taken from a German road atlas published by the Nazi Party. If you find this useful, and would like me to add other cities, let me know. The thumbnails are linked to versions that I think will be large enough to use.
