Abstract

This collections comprises issues of extremely antisemitic Nazi periodical Der Stuermer (the Attacker), of an iformatinal illustrative magaize Illustrierter Beobacheter (Illustrative Observer and Die Sirene (The Siren), of an illustrative military magazien, all in all published in Nazi Germany.

Scope and Contents of the Materials

All these periodicals are of Nationalist-Socialist ideology. However, Der Stuermer is notoriously known for its vulgar and barbaric antisemitism, while the Illustrative Observer and The Siren are typical Nazi-German publications glorifying the regime and oriented on the support of German military cause.

Der Stürmer (the Attacker) was a weekly tabloid-format Nazi newspaper published by Julius Streicher (a prominent official in the Nazi Party) from 1923 to the end of the Second World War, with brief suspensions in publication due to legal difficulties. It was a significant part of Nazi propaganda and was vehemently antisemitic. Unlike the Völkischer Beobachter (translatable as The People's Observer), the official party paper which gave itself an outwardly serious appearance, Der Stürmer often ran obscene material such as antisemitic caricatures of Jews and accusations of blood libel, plus sexually explicit, anti-Catholic, anti-Communist, anti-capitalist and anti-monarchist propaganda also too.

The newspaper originated at Nuremberg during Hitler's attempt to establish power and control. During the struggle to achieve power, Streicher was accused by the opposition of the Nazi party as being "a liar, a coward, of having unsavory friends, mistreating his wife and of flirting with women". Despite the accusations, the first copy of Der Stürmer was published April 20, 1923. Der Stürmer’s circulation grew over time, distributing to a large percentage of the German population as well as Argentina, Brazil, Canada and the United States.

Between August 1941 and September 1944, Streicher authorized articles demanding the annihilation and extermination of the Jewish race. After the war, he was convicted of crimes against humanity and executed.

Illustrierter Beobachter (Illustrated Observer) was an illustrated propaganda magazine published by  the German National Socialist Party. It was published from 1926 to 1945 in Munich, and edited by Hermann Esser.

It began as a monthly publication and its first issue showed members of the Bamberger Nationalist Party of a Jewish Synagogue and denounced Jacob Rosny Rosenstein, a potential Nobel Laureate as a "disgrace to German culture". Special editions denounced England and France for starting the war.

Extremely antisemitic, Der Stuermer also took a harsh satiric approach to internationla politics as well. Der Stuermer strongly  exploated the theory of "world Jewish conspiracy."

Illustrierter  Beobachter (The Illustrative Observer) largerly reflected on the triumph of National Socialism in all spheres  of life. It also explicitely criticized and revealed  life behind the scene in the USSR. The periodical also took a highly negative stand with regard to the international commmunist movement.

Die Sirene (The Siren) was a lesser political enagaged magazine. It reflected the German and world politics and was of a rather leisure reading.
