Many of the items displayed here are exceedingly rare. Immediately after the War, the Allies were faced with the question of what to do with the tremendous amount of ‘offensive’ material that had been published during the previous fifteen years. A decision was made to destroy it all. The German population was ordered to burn all suspect items, with penalties imposed on anyone found in possession of them. Even libraries were included under this decree. A list of these banned publications, containing more than 35,000 entries, is available on the internet. Among them are all of the books, pamphlets, and posters contained in this archive.
We view these documents as essential artifacts of modern history, and are dedicated to collecting, preserving, and exhibiting them. We are always interested in new source material. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
An excellent source of additional information, including translations of various of the items posted here, is the German Propaganda Archive hosted by Dr. Randall Bytwerk
