Eight page illustrated souvenir program for the Nazi propaganda film, Der Sieg des Glaubens [Victory of the Faith], a documentary film of the Fifth Party Congress of the Nazi Party, directed by Leni Riefenstahl. Held in September 1933, it as known as the Rally of Victory, and was the first Rally held after Hitler's appointment as Chancellor of Germany on January 30, 1933. It was also the first rally filmed by Riefenstahl, whose film of the next rally, Triumph of the Will, was a visually stunning, propaganda masterwork glorifying Hitler and the Nazi Party. The booklet features images of Hitler and other Nazi Party leaders, including Joseph Goebbels, Hermann Goering, and Ernst Rohm. SA chief Rohm was killed the next year in the purge known as the Night of the Long Knives, and Hitler ordered this film destroyed.
