Hitler's Death

I recently got the 2 May 1945 issue of the Hamburger Zeitung, which reports Hitler's death. Now, the war was all but over, and other stories in the issue make that clear without even trying to suggest that victory is still possible. Under those circumstances, it is interesting to see how Hitler's death is handled.

Issues of Signal for Sale

I've added 19 issues of Signal to the list of items I have for sale. This was a lavishly illustrated magazine published in more than 25 languages, and intended for foreign consumption. These are German-language copies distributed in Switzerland, and are fascinating examples of Nazi propaganda for international audiences. THESE HAVE BEEN SOLD.

The cover below, from a January 1942 issue, shows captured Russian soldiers.
