A Nazi propaganda photo from a series on the life and works of Adolf Hitler.
Caption (in German): "Differing views in the community building in Vienna (Wien). Above, the swastika; below, the three arrows, symbol of the Social Democrats"
Photographed prior to the annexation of Austria to Germany in March 1938.
This is one of a series of Nazi propaganda photographs, titled "Adolf Hitler and his Way to the 'Greater Germany'" (Adolf Hitler und sein Weg zu Grossdeutschland), distributed in Austria after the its annexation to the German Reich on March 13, 1938. The photos were included as a premium in cigarette packs, and a commemorative album with companion texts was available for purchase at tobacconists for the token sum of one Reichmark. This sort of album and propaganda method are similar to promotional campaigns previously conducted in Germany.
The topics of the photos include the origins of the Nazi movement, Nazi Austria, significant events in the German nationalist struggle with the Left in the early decades of the 20th C., etc. Close
