German Propaganda Archive


Background: The Third Reich visual scene was filled with flags, banners, and propaganda items. Someone had to sell such items. This page provides some pages from a summer 1939 catalog. Besides the obviously Nazi items, the catalog includes party items, magnesium torches (for torch-light parades), and much more, in a total of 32 pages.
