German Propaganda Archive Calvin University


Background: Between 1937 and 1941, the Wochenspruch der NSDAP, a weekly poster with inspiring quotations, was issued both centrally by the Reichspropagandaleitung in Munich and by many of the various Gau propaganda offices. After that, all issues came from Munich. Most Gauleitungen ceased printing their own in 1939, but Niederdonau continued into 1940 and Sachsen into 1941. This page has issues from Gau Schleswig-Holstein.

The source: I translate these from a German Internet site that has the images, but apparently does not want them further reproduced.
