Nazi Economic Propaganda: 1938-1940

The latest addition to the German Propaganda Archive is a variety of charts from Die wirtschaftspolitische Parole, the official Nazi bimonthly on economic matters. It covered a wide range of topics.

Two images are below. The first is part of the Nazi anti-smoking campaign, claiming that the equivalent of two million Volkswagens have gone up in smoke, or that for the amount spent on tobacco, enough gas could have been purchased to drive 50 billion kilometers. The second image asserts that Jews are being driven out of the German economy, to the benefit of everyone else.
