Nazi propaganda bill, copy of a dollar dropped from a German Luftwaffe plane over French skies. “Money has no smell but the Jew has a smell.” Two flyers released by the Nazis in Holland. The Nazi propaganda was part of its activity to gather supporters in Germany and outside it. At that time, it was ever-present in the day-to-day life in the Third Reich. This propaganda was all encompassing, it included innovative technology for the time—radio and film. Huge rallies, flags, and symbols, the creation of an ideal and prophetic language, unique to Nazism, whose goal was to take control of the thoughts of all those living in the Reich.
