Postal propaganda of the Third Reich / by Albert L. Moore.
This thesis contains an in depth look at German life and an exploration of the shaping of attitudes in pre Nazi and Nazi Germany. To aid in this discovery process, postal materials and their related propaganda messages and images are studied and illustrated. Through this examination of the documents and materials which Germans found in their mailboxes on a daily basis, a greater understanding is gained of the overwhelming psychological and political pressures facing German citizens of this era. Emphasis is given to the development of postal propaganda and its various themes. This study supplements and combines information found in previous studies of World War Two which focused on an historic or philatelic approach. In doing so, the study illuminates the social fabric of Nazi Germany in a new way and provides another element of understanding of how Hitler came to power.
