The Ministry of Propaganda in 1942
A year or so back, I bought a stack of Signal, a bi-monthly illustrated propaganda magazine the Nazis issued in about two dozen languages. The stack was missing one issue I particularly wanted from August 1942 — a story on Goebbels’s Ministry of Propaganda and Public Enlightenment. Just recently, I managed to secure the missing issue, and have added it to the GPA. It’s most interesting for a variety of pictures, two of which are below.
This a device that allowed Goebbels to interrupt all German radio programming to make an announcement.
Every day at 11:00 a.m., Goebbels held a conference with top propagandists.
