    Brief Narrative
    Educational poster with headshots of 3 men produced to show the ideal facial features of Aryan Germans. It is from a portfolio of teaching panels designed by Alfred Vogel, a school headmaster and Nazi Party member, to instruct students on the superiority of the Aryan race, the virtue of racial purity, and the burden that Jews, as well as the handicapped, mentally ill, and unfit, place on society. For Hitler's government, the indoctrination of children through the required teaching of Nazi ideology was a powerful tool. The teaching of eugenics and racial biology began in primary school. Vogel's series provided illustrated aids on its key aspects, showing in simple pictures the urgency of the Jewish threat, the danger of racial miscegenation, or mixing of races, and how the pure breed will always be strongest, and mixed breeds must be eliminated.
