Deutschland Eine


“All propaganda has to be popular and has to accommodate itself to the comprehension of the least intelligent of those whom it seeks to reach.” -Adolf Hitler
"By the skillful and sustained use of propaganda, one can make a people see even heaven as hell or an extremely wretched life as paradise. " -Adolf Hitler
Propaganda was used in Germany during elections and when citizens held doubts against the government. Hitler appeared in most propaganda in the 1930's because the Nazi government was in control at the time, and wanted their name to constantly be in the minds of everyone. Propaganda persuaded votes in elections and portrayed Germany's strength as a country compared to their "weaker" opponenets.

Germany Goods

The top translates as “Germans buy German goods.” The bottom text translates: “German Week/German Goods/German Labor." This poster encourages Germans to buy domestic rather than imported goods. On this scale it's shown that Germany weighs more by itself than all other countries combined. This represents their strength and worth as a country compared to the rest of the world.


This poster urged a “Yes” vote for Hitler to persuade Germans to support Nazi Germany. The exclamation mark implies a positive and enthusiastic attitude towards the Nazi Government.

Germany is Free

This poster is from 1938. The caption translates to “Germany is free!” and shows a picture of Germany and Hitler. The artist wants you to correlate Hitler with Germany being free by combing the two pictures together. Also, by placing Germany directly below Hitler's head, it makes it seem like Germany is Hitler's body. So in a sense Germany is Hitler.


The caption means “Adolf Hitler is victory!” This, like the previous poster, correlates victory and success with Hitler. As long as Hitler is in power, Germany will be victorious.

Youth Under Hitlers Rule

The text of this 1940 poster reads “Youth Serves the Leader. All 10-year-olds into the Hitler Youth.” Hitler was strong for education begining at a young age. By appealing to the youth through propaganda he was drawing the next generations into the Nazi Party.

Events During Nazi Germany

  • 1933- Hitler became chancellor of Germany. As a chancellor he only had limited power, but that changed because he would later become dictator.
  • 1935- Nuremberg Laws were enacted. These laws were anti-Semitic laws presented by Adolf Hitler incorporating scientific racism.  The enactment of laws identifying who was Jewish made it easier for the Nazis to enforce legislation restricting the basic rights of German Jews. The Nuremberg Laws classified people with four German grandparents as "German or kindred blood", while people were classified as Jews if they descended from three or four Jewish grandparents. A person with one or two Jewish grandparents was a Mischling, a crossbreed, of "mixed blood". These laws deprived Jews from having German citizenship and prohibited marriage between Jews and Aryans.
  • 1936- Germany hosted the Olympics to show Aryan superiority, and was proved wrong by an African-American runner/jumper because he won the 4 gold medals. When non-Aryan's won a medal, Hitler would leave the stadium to avoid congratulating them.
