While reading Peter Fritzsche's new book Life and Death in Nazi Germany, I came across a reference to children in Munich incorporating a concentration camp into their games. That I had to look up, and I've now added the April 1933 article titled "The New Game: The S.A. Cleans up the Liebknecht House," which was the Communist Party's headquarters in Berlin. The picture below shows their makeshift concentration camp.
The article is a good example of how quickly Nazi ideology penetrated German society. This issue appeared only ten weeks after Hitler had taken power.

I've added a partial translation of a nasty 1943/1944 pamphlet titled The Jew as World Parasite. Originally published by the Nazi Party for use in party education, an edition for the Wehrmacht was issued in 1944. It's a good example of late-war Nazi anti-Semitism.
