Propaganda of Hitler's NSDAP is combined here
with the allied propaganda in a chronology.
Readers can see a survey about poster propaganda
from 1933 to 1945. You can see exactly fantasy
and reality of the propaganda agitation.
Surprisingly also "American" propaganda is very

of NSDAP for NS party convention at
Nuremberg of 1927
A young soldier is holding a
swastika flag which is almost bigger
than the soldier.
Note the "red city" in the
background. This seems to be an
allusion to the communists who had
their centers in the German towns.
It seems that the standard bearer
has not much control resp. his
tenure is a tenure which was normal
at the NS party conventions.
All in all the picture card is
giving the impression that there is
not needed much change to convert
the communist town into a swastika
town, because the red color of the
town and the red color of the flag
are almost the same. And the main
subject was to conquer the communist
centers in the country. A gray sky
is promising a coming
"thunderstorm", and the political
leaders partially also wanted this
"thunderstorm", but partially they
want Hitler only as a provisional

text: "Brake the Dawes' chains, list
10, Hitler's movement" (orig. German:

the French occupation of the Ruhr
Basin Dawes was an allied financial
expert fixing again the reparation
of Versailles Treaty on 16 August
1924 in a Reparation's Commission.
At the same time Reichsbank was put
under international control and
Germany was given a bond. At the
same time all this brought more
German dependence from the "USA".
So, after Versailles Treaty and
after Ruhr Basin occupation the
right national wing parties had new
stuff to draw Germany "in chains" as
one can see it here. Germany is
clenching it's fist as a symbol that
forces in Germany are blocked and
cannot develop. But "develop" in
these times means to make war and to
control colonies. There are some
exotic towers on the poster in the
background. Smoking chimneys are the
symbol for jobs. The red sky is
clearly the color of NSDAP.
during inflation times 1930 to 1932 - Hitler
benefits from poverty
Industrials' policy after
stock market crash of 1929 was without mercy.
The allied only gave in on 9 July 1932 that
Germany did not have to pay any reparations
any more. Industrials of the world let sink
the whole world into a deep depression, with
millions of jobless persons electing extreme
parties in their plight because the mainstream
parties became untrustworthy and no one than
the extreme parties promised solutions for the
plight. Add to this also a big part of the
elite did not want any more their Weimar
Republic and wanted to have an other Emperor
installed. For this development Hitler should
be a provisional government. At the same time
communists worked for their world revolution
and they had their centers in the German towns
which were attacked directly by NSDAP for
years. So, there was missing the path of
common sense, and since 1923 the population in
Germany was starving another plight again.
of NSDAP in Weimar Republic saying
"The red war" ("Der rote Krieg"), 1930
"The red war - mother or comrade? -
Human being or machine? - God or
devil? - Blood or gold? - Race or
bastard? - Folksong or jazz? -
National Socialism or Bolshevism?"
"Der rote Krieg - Mutter oder
Genossin? - Mensch oder Maschine? -
Gott oder Teufel? - Blut oder Gold?
- Rasse oder Mischling? - Volkslied
oder Jazz? - Nationalsozialismus
The term "The red war": In Weimar
Republic there was an eternal
propaganda war between the right
wing parties (Loyals (to the
Emperor) and National Socialists)
against the communist parties. Both
sides had the most aggressive color
red as a base in their flags, and
it's the most aggressive color
following color psychology.
Therefore there was defined a "red
The poster presents National
Socialist characteristics in
comparison with communists and
"USA". National Socialists try to
present their racist ideas as
positive elements representing
communists generally as comrade or
machines saying that a mother in
communism would be no mother any
more but a "comrade", and that
humans in communism would be no
humans any more but "machines". This
communism would be from "devil", and
National Socialism would be from
"God". Then are listed some elements
against "USA": "Full-blooded" humans
would be stronger than
"mixed-blooded", this means that one
would be on the winner's side with
the racists. There is listed the
"full-blooded" folk song against
jazz music of the "mixed-blooded",
as an allusion of the black
musicians in white sex clubs in the
"USA". The comparison between
"full-blooded" blood and gold is an
allusion to the international stock
exchange with it's clans making
millions of dollars with insider
knowledge and financial tricks
(there were also some Jewish persons
winning with stock exchange
speculations in the "USA", the
allusion is headed against them).
So, the poster is mixing communist
and "US" structures but is asking at
the end only about "communism or
Bolshevism". So, the poster is
equating communism and "USA", resp.
the energy against communism also
should fight against "USA". Some
terms like "machine" or "gold" also
will be terms of National Socialism
in Second World War (soldiers as
machines, looted gold etc.), and the
"full-blooded" are mentally always
limited compared with the
of NSDAP in Weimar Republic calling
"Hitler for President of the Reich"
(orig. German: "Hitler wird
personally claims on the poster: "We
will take the fate of the nation
into our hands" (orig. German: "Wir
nehmen das Schicksal der Nation in
die Hände"). The poster is agitating
with swastika flags and a portrait,
besides can be seen industrial
plants representing jobs. Hitler's
right hand is alluring the voter
with it's forefinger. The gestures
are simple an clear.
of NSDAP in Weimar Republic "Open the
door for freedom - List 2", July
claims: "And now: Open the gate to
freedom! A strong hand has to steer!
Come out from the swamp! Come on
with the forces of reconstruction!"
(orig. German: "Und nun: Stosst auf
das Tor zur Freiheit! Eine starke
Hand ans Steuer! Heraus aus dem
Sumpf! Vorwärts mit den Kräften des
The word "freedom" is again taken
from slavery for reparations (Young
plan had foreseen work for
reparation until 1988) which was
lifted only on 9 July 1932. The
world wide political situation was
in fact a "swamp", and the persons
could hardly find work and the
families had hunger at home in
masses. The poster first is claiming
"freedom" of full stomachs against
the mainstream parties which have
become absolutely untrustworthy. The
swastika flag on the town hall is
announced, and everybody knew of it.
But the poster also has an absolute
military dimension for "freedom" and
where the open "gate" is leading.
There is a queue of soldiers (left)
and there is the population with a
Hitler salute (right). So, this
poster also is an indirect warning
from the war projects of a National
Socialist government. And everybody
knew of it...
of NSDAP in Weimar Republic "Work and
bred by National Socialism, list 1",
with swastika moon, 1932
poster claims that with a vote for
list 1 there would be "work and
bread". The smoking chimney is the
symbol for working industry and
jobs. At the sky is a swastika moon.
This means that with National
Socialism will be work for day and
night as in a dream during the
night. So, NSDAP is representing
itself as a "dream" for the
population without saying that the
waking up will be in a big war. But
the war is drawn well on other
posters, and it's also written in
"My Struggle" (orig. German: "Mein
Kampf") on the last 20 pages.

Air raid protection
3R "Air raid protection is self
protection" (orig. German: "Luftschutz
This voter's slogan
"Yes" (orig. German: "Ja") for 19
August 1934 refers to the vote
about a merger of the offices of
the President of the Reich with
the Chancellor of the Reich. The
Reich's Air Raid Association
(RLB)) gave out the slogan of
"Yes" (German: "Ja").
Basically this poster
shows already here the situation
of "David" against Goliath: A
bowman shall fight bombers. There
are many bombers, and by this one
can consider these air planes as
an allied coalition. So, there is
the Reich (bowmen) against the
rest of the world, and this fight
will be fought with unqualified
means (bow against air plane).
Another interpretation would be
that the air protection would be
as easy as a children's bowman
against all bombers. Probably the
poster had this effect. There can
be seen also religious emotions in
the poster abused for the war by a
cathedral in the background.
Religious feelings are abused for
war resp. the air protection has
to protect the cathedral, a
systematic propaganda trick coming
up again and again.
3R "The fighter in the air
protection" (orig. German: "Der
Kämpfer im Luftschutz"),
This is the excerpt of a Goering's
speech reinforcing the consciousness
for an air protection in the
population. This population is
committed to air protection service
with the claim: "The fighters of the
air protection have as much
responsibility and honor as the
soldier at the front"
Kämpfer im Luftschutz hat so viel
Verantwortung und so viel hre wie
jeder Soldat an der Front").
So, the official duty of air
protection was - in it's meaning -
equaled to the military service in
the army (from: "Civil air
protection" (orig. German: "Der
zivile Luftschutz", 2nd edition,
At the same time this text of 1935

Finland war has a very important meaning for
the mis performance of propaganda. Red Army
cannot win against clever Finnish skiing
soldiers. Stalin's Red Army cannot advance
and is defeated with some little won
territories. This provokes all Western
propaganda to the conclusion that the Red
Army is weak and easy to defeat.
Consequently all governments underestimate
the Red Army thinking that Wehrmacht could
reach Moscow in 8 or 12 weeks. And Hitler
means that Soviet Union could be defeated
also without England or without Japan. But
this was a big fault...
Finland makes peace with Russia and gives in
leaving some little territories to Russia.
With this peace in spring 1940 Finland is
shocking all Europe, and NS regime in Berlin
means that Finland would drop out as
alliance partner against communist Russia.

The poster is really saying what means

symbolizing the dead, and the ball in

At the same time the scenery is
absolutely unreal because the sky is
cloud-covered, but air raids were
performed mostly with clear sky. So,
the clouds are a symbol for another
"thunderstorm" coming up over Germany,
resp. the poster claims that the enemy
had hidden himself in the clouds, or
the enemy had brought the thunderstorm
clouds to Germany. That's all absolute
nonsense because Hitler was the one
who wanted the war, together with some
industrialists from abroad.
facts are other ones: The air raids
were foreseeable for years resp. the
whole world was waiting for the
"technological development" to
execute an "air war". For this "air
war" Hitler has much too less
antiaircraft defense, he has
aircrafts, and the jet fighter is
available since 1939 but is not in
use because of the "protection of
the pilots". And by all this, death
is in fact coming over Germany. One
can ask why the jet fighter was not
used since 1939...

darkening of every window if any
light would be visible. Houses with
failing darkening were noted and
fixed a posting with the blaming

verdunkelt!"). So police spy society
was developed on and on and it can
be admitted that this procedure also
was performed in other countries and
also on the allied side with the
exception of "USA" which had no air
raid with the exception of Pearl
Harbor in Pacific.

The big enigma
will be for ever why Hitler only used the jet

did not want to enter a contaminated
town with the danger also to be

territories and in NS satellite
states since 1942.
The poster has many manipulative
elements. Once again there is an
aureole, this time coming from the
eagle, lightening Germany, resp.
Germany stays in a sea of beams. At
the same time German eagle is
enthroned as an absolute power
protecting the air space. the wing
hanging down is marking the frontier
to Asia pretending a posture of
defense against Russia. All is a
lie: The eagle is in a two-front
war, the air space is not protected
at all, and communism will - also
because of Hitler's stubbornness -
push forward up to Berlin. The lie
of such posters will be in mind in
Europe for a long time yet...
in England: Hitler as "Maneater" on
poster presents Hitler as a
bloodthirsty maneater gnawing at a
leg's bone. There are skulls around
him representing different European
countries suffering Nazi occupation
(France, Greece, Yugoslavia, Poland,
Belgium) or which have adopted some
Nazi rule (Rumania / Romania). The
sky is painted in a dark blue as it
is before coming the night, the soil
is orange as it would be a mixture
of yellow (sand of the desert) with
red (blood). The poster is
predicting: The countries with NS
law are in a desert without food and
without water. They were forced by
Hitler there. There will be many
deaths, and the night is coming for
these countries, and the culprit is
Hitler alone, this says the poster.
Hitler had had all possibilities to
end the war and to install a status
quo in Europe. But he even rejected
Stalin's peace offers, with the
simple justification that he did not
want another Versailles tribunal
against Germany. And then came the
night for Germany...

propaganda was necessary to
convince the peace movements to
be part of the armament against
the NS regime and against Japan.
"USA" were in danger to be
encircled by Germany and Japan.
(see: Valentin Falin: Zweite
considering the collaboration of
"US" industry with German Nazi
industry this poster is
The poster also has a
racial aspect. A black and a
white man are composing an air
plane cockpit. The blacks should
help the whites winning the war.
But at the end the racial laws
were not abolished and equality
between blacks and whites was
introduced during the 1970s
only. The white race and it's
colonial government on the
native's continent were
absolutely unfaithful so, not
only referring to this poster.
Natives are missing totally on
this poster although "USA" are
on native's soil...
the "USA": "Avenge Pearl Harbor! Our
bullets will do it", 1942 appr.
Now the white "US" government called
for revenge of Pearl Harbor. The
poster shows some frightening details.
We see air planes with red points
marked as Japanese. The white man is
swimming with it's life jacket in the
sea symbolizing the situation of "USA"
which would drown if there was no
resistance. But the white man stays
alone, without blacks and without
natives. So it's clear who is giving
the commands in the war, and it's
clear that blacks and natives will not
count in the statistics. The stars on
the life jacket are the symbol of the
occupation of the native's continent.
Women do not exist either on the
poster. The raised fist of the man is
symbol for his fury. The man has got
white hairs and a white pointed beard
and has got a Caesar's hook nose. This
combination is very rare, and every
element represents a characteristic:
White hair for wisdom, the pointed
beard for Asian wisdom which has to be
defeated, and Caesar's hook nose
stands for the future victory. The sky
is yellow representing the hope. The
poster is stimulating the viewer to
copy the man.
Well, considering the
collaboration of "US" industry
with German Nazi industry this
poster is absolutely obsolete...
the "USA": "Our Carelessness - Their
Secret Weapon - Prevent Forest Fires",
"USA" are in a two-front war (like
Hitler Germany), against the Nazi
symbol and against the Japanese flag
with the red sun, whereby the
"American" continent never is
attacked. Anyhow white "US" government
means that it is it's right to erase
town by town on European continent and
on Japanese islands. This is justified
by the slogan "Prevent Forest Fires".
The poster indicates that there would
be big fires in the "USA". But this is
not at all the case, but the fact is
the contrary: The "USA" are erasing
whole towns in Europe and are
provoking fires in Europe, and later
also in Vietnam etc. With this poster
is beginning global destructive policy
of "USA", from Europe over Vietnam up
And, considering the
collaboration of "US" industry
with German Nazi industry this
poster is absolutely obsolete...
the "USA": Women's brigade WAAC, 1942
On 15 May 1942 President Roosevelt
signed a law for a foundation of
Women's Army Auxiliary Corps (WAAC).
The women replace the men on working
places like driver, parachute
production, translator, cook, weather
service, air space control.
WAAC was set up because "US" army was
in danger of lack of men. The soldiers
themselves did not like WAAC. They
feared that women also would become
women soldiers and would harm their
"maleness", or they feared the loss of
a war safe job.
The sentence: "This is my war too!"
with a white blond women with a flag
with stars and stripes in the
background also reminds the proud
"American" times since 1776.
But, considering the
collaboration of "US" industry
with German Nazi industry this
poster is absolutely obsolete...
in the "USA": "Buy Victory Bonds",
poster shows clearly the two-front
war of the "USA" between the
swastika and the Japanese flag with
the red sun. There are several
propaganda tricks: Third Reich and
Japan are represented as dark,
spider like hands. Well, for many
persons spider is provoking anxiety.
These spiders want to snatch at the
white woman with a white baby,
whereby the Japanese hand is already
touching the white woman, not so the
German hand. Why: Japanese bombs
fale on Hawaii which was "US"
territory, but German bombs have not
dropped on the "USA" yet. But now
the main manipulation comes: The
"American" white woman and above all
the baby are symbol for innocence,
as "USA" would be innocent for this
situation. But "US" industrials were
essentially helping Hitler's war
machinery (Henry Ford, antiknock
agent, bonds etc.). All in all the
poster is a big falsification of
reality. And the poster is provoking
the lowest male instincts to protect
women and child from bugs, all in
all very racist statement.
Well, considering the truth about
criminal racist warmonger "USA",
"USA" is the spider since 1942...

defeat of Stalingrad as an opportunity
to claim the absolute servility. The
ruins of Stalingrad are painted in red
with the communist flag with the
communist star. But there is the
Fuehrer's hand coming with it's

an "aureole" (sea of beams) provoking
religious feelings in the viewers soul

it's a "holy" war against communism,

Shortly after the defeat of
Stalingrad this poster is coming up
pretending that German population
has only the choice between victory
or Bolshevism with caos. Party
propagandists ware instructed to
post this poster more than others.
The poster is a mockery about the

German blond mother with a blond,
long haired daughter in her arms,
and the daughter is making the
raised fist as signal for the fight.
But many German towns are already in
ruins, and many children are already
separated in children evacuation

dark world where people cannot walk
any more. They are on the floor

figure is watching supervising them.

better organized now and in the back

This is a recruitment poster for an SS

There were other posters in this
manner in other NS occupied countries,
e.g. in Holland or in Norway.
After Stalingrad NS regime had more

in a church for three days etc.

first of course an Aryan blond
boy, then a brown haired boy, and
finally a blond Aryan girl. The
children are carrying big bundles
of papers, the first boy also
carries a book and a card case
under his arm. So, it seems as if
the children would perform the
scrap paper collection. This means
that Hitler Youth now also
contributed their share to the war
with children from 10 to 13 years
old, resp. probably the children
were "employed". The grinning of
the boys seems to be a childish
joy, or perhaps because related to
the performance because perhaps
there was a reward to have. But
basically the children were in

This cartoon describes the conditions in the
"USA" very well: The white beauty queen has
put an adornment of a native chief whereby teh
natives in the "USA" have the "American"
passport but have no rights and are partly
eliminated. The symbol of the cave for the
blacks is right because there is strong racism
in the "USA" until the 1970s, and the blacks
are not eliminated, but they are shut up in a
box concerning their rights. The banker with
it's dollar sack is the shugar of the "USA"
for impoverished Europe. Superficiality of the
white "American" population allows the war
against Europe and is laying - together with
English units - not only all German towns, but
also towns in Holland and in France in ashes.
So, there is the question which "Freedom" is
represented by the "Statue of Freedom" of New
York, because: The banks of the "USA" have
financed communism and Third Reich at the same
But unfortunately it's not an act bringing
peace to point out the mistakes of the other
ones when oneself one is not capable to create
peace, and Hitler had no middle course between
victory or flight. So, this cartoon is good,

There are some remarkable elements
in this poster: Writing is very
declined and implicating a movement
arriving at the two defenders, and
this moving should be halted by the
weapons of the defenders. This
should make clear to the viewer that
now the case is all or nothing.
Native soil of the Old Reich has to
be defended. There is not one single
warlike action shown on the poster,
but there can be seen two men, one
young, another old, in a position of
defense, as if they would hold two
flagpoles in their hands. This
position is real as long as the
allies have not come yet. Also the
equipment is probably real, in
reality with shovels or medieval
spears in their hands, without
uniform, without helmet, without
emergency provision and without
pistol. So, the poster represents
the whole truth, whereby only the
superior allied armies are missing.

be represented on the poster all
knew very quickly that in this case
there is nothing to win any more...

"During Second World War German propaganda

almost no success. In their own countries
the allied propaganda is a big help for
At the other side also German propaganda
(with the exception of the Arab region) has
no effect in other countries. All in all one
can make out that psychological warfare
within the own national borders has proven
oneself, but as a mean to decompose the
enemy's resistance has failed."
"Im zweiten Weltkrieg hat sich die deutsche
Propaganda im Innern als erfolgreich, die
gegen Deutschland gerichtete alliierte als
wenig wirksam erwiesen. Bis 1945 bleibt der
psychologischen Kriegsführung der Alliierten

Deutschland jeder grössere Erfolg versagt,
während sie innerhalb ihrer eigenen Länder
überall Entscheidendes zum Siege beiträgt.
Andererseits vermag auch die deutsche
Propaganda (abgesehen vom arabischen Raum)
