The collection consists of a miniature bust of Hitler, six Nazi propaganda pamphlets, documents, and photographs associated with the propaganda efforts of the Nazi Party in Germany from 1933-1945.
Date: approximately 1940
Miniature Nazi propaganda booklet featuring scenes of Hitler visiting the military, including wounded troops, and other public appearances between 1932 and 1937. A series of these books were distributed as premiums to contributors to the Winterhilfswerk, a fundraising drive conducted through the Nationalsozialistische Volkswohlfahrt (National Socialist People's Welfare Organization), to provide winter relief. Strings were attached so that the books, known as button books, could be worn to show that an individual had contributed to the war effort. Hitler's signature is printed at the end.
