Transcript of Nazi Propaganda
What is Propaganda?
Propaganda is the art of persuasion - persuading others that your 'side of the story' is correct.
Hitler came to power in January 1933
Examples of Propaganda:
Military is to great to be challenged
political might within a nation is too great or popular to challenge
In Germany, Dr Joseph Goebbels was in charge of propaganda
By May 1933, the Nazi Party felt sufficiently strong to publicly demonstrate there beliefs
Dr. Joseph Goebbels
Born on October 29, 1897, in Rheydt, Germany, Joseph Goebbels served as minister of propaganda for the Nazi German government of the Third Reich, and is generally held responsible for presenting a favorable image of the Nazi regime to the Germans. Following Adolf Hitler's suicide, Goebbels served as chancellor of Germany for a single day before he and his wife, Magda Goebbels, poisoned their six children and took their own lives.
To promote there beliefs the made books, short stories and movies.
Death and Sacrifice
The ensure that everybody could hear Hitler speak, Goebbels organized the sale of cheap radios. these were called the "People's Receiver" and they cost only 76 marks.
Outcome of Nazi Propaganda
Goebbels organized rallies that were designed to show to the world the might of the Nazi nation.
Reasons for Taking Action
Committed suicide on April 30, 1954 in Führerbunker in Berlin
He killed him self by gun shot
Great extents on teaching
textbooks, posters and films the differences between Germans and Jews
Nazi racial policy did not always include in degrading Jews but had to always maintain the importance of German blood and the Aryan race
The segregation of races was said to be natural, just as separate species did not come together in nature
Propaganda aimed at racial preservation
aimed at the youth, adults also were subject since the mid-1930s, to the belief that Jews (including women and children) were not only dangerous to Germany but also subhuman
any sexual relations between Aryans and non-Aryans became a criminalized offense
His wife (Eve) also committed suicide but by poison
Nazi propaganda emphasized that the Aryan race could only continue through the children for the future generations
Children were taught that they were biologically superior
Encouraged to marry and have children as early as possible
They encouraged the same race ( if not they were looked down on.)
The enemy were the Jews. Hitler convinced the Germans that the Jews were the economic problems. Hitler had asked who was behind all the Germans failed war efforts, and the people said "The Jews".
1933; Hitler's speeches spoke of serving Germany and defending it from its foes: hostile countries, Communism, liberals, and culture decay, but not Jews.
1935; The first set of anti-Semitic laws went into effect in Nazi Germany; the Nuremberg Laws forbid the Jews and political opponents from civil service. It 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.
1939; Hitler's January 30th speech opened with praise for the flowering of the German people, but went on to declare that whatever was detrimental to the people could not be ethical, and to threaten Jews as the authors of any coming war.
Deaths were often viewed as heroic glorious in nazi propaganda
The men who died in war were honored and celebrated
They made many films for honoring the troops
The reasons for propaganda was to influence people and to implement Nazi policies, as well as to inflict on the countries that implemented the Treaty of Versailles on Germany. Nazi propaganda was mainly used as a form of nationalism and pride.
Nazi propaganda was very successful in portraying the Germans as supermen and making Hitler seem almost godlike. What Nazi propaganda did best was making the German people think that world conquest was their destiny and possibly their duty to conquer all people who were "inferior" to them. It really pushed the notion that they were the master race, Goebbels did a very effective job as Minister of Propaganda in many ways. Not only were posters an effective tool but also the speeches Hitler gave were very carefully orchestrated the way he would begin the speech very calm and work himself into a frenzy by the end of it, that was a great piece of acting.
Adolf Hitler was the leader of Nazi Germany from 1934 to 1945. He initiated World War II and oversaw fascist policies that resulted in millions of deaths.
Born in Austria in 1889, Adolf Hitler rose to power in German politics as leader of the National Socialist German Workers Party, also known as the Nazi Party. Hitler was chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945, and served as dictator from 1934 to 1945. His policies precipitated World War II and the Holocaust. Hitler committed suicide with wife Eva Braun on April 30, 1945, in his Berlin bunker
