Campaign poster using a comparison of cars, workers, and money to illustrate job growth thanks to Adolf Hitler

Object | Accession Number: 2008.342.10

Nazi propaganda broadside produced for the March 29, 1936, Reichstag election and plebiscite on the remilitarization of the Rhineland. It illustrates the rise in employment, production, and prosperity in Germany from 1932-1935 through proportional illustrations of automobiles, a worker, and a stack of money, as promised by Adolf Hitler. The poster has an excerpt from a February 15, 1936, speech by Hitler to the German automobile industry on manufacturing an affordable car, the Volkswagen, for the German people. 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 favor of the action.
