Cigarette card photo of an enthusiastic crowd waiting for Hitler

Object | Accession Number: 2012.68.6

Cigarette card, Der Führer verlässt den Bauplatz des Hauses der Deutschen Kunst, image 108, group 64, series 15, Adolf Hitler - Pictures of the Life of the Führer, from about 1936. The card features a black and white photograph of a crowd cheering for Hitler, who is not pictured, outside the House of German Art in Munich, Germany. Cigarette cards were a popular collectible item in Germany beginning about 1920. Large albums with text, but no pictures, were published for each series and the cards were collected to be added as illustrations. The increasing popularity of the Nazi Party made them a desirable subject for a collectible card series. The album for this series has text and photo captions that tell the story of Hitler's life from his birth in 1899 to his 1933 appointment as Chancellor, and then Fuhrer, of Germany.
