Large campaign poster featuring a train crossing the globe to show donations raised thanks to the prosperity brought by Nazi Party rule

Object | Accession Number: 2008.342.5

Nazi propaganda poster, torn into 2 sections, produced for the March 29, 1936, Reichstag election and plebiscite on the remilitarization of the Rhineland. It depicts a train stretching from Germany to Africa to demonstrate the large amount of donations received by the Winter Charity Campaign from 1933 to 1935. This was the Nazi People’s Welfare Organization’s (NSV) annual fundraising event to provide money, clothes, and food to German people in need. The election had only Nazi party candidates. The referendum was to approve, after the fact, the German reclamation of sovereignty of the Rhineland in western Germany, an area that had been demilitarized under the Treaty of Versailles; 98.9% of the population voted in support of the Nazis.
