Text only broadside for a Nazi Party political rally, concert, and march

Object | Accession Number: 2012.246.2

Text only poster announcing a Freedoms Rally sponsored by the NSDAP [National Socialist German Workers' Party/Nazi Party] to be held in Schneidemuhl, Germany, (now Pila, Poland) on July 25 and 26, 1931. It was a two day event, with speakers and a concert on Saturday and a rally, speakers, and a protest march led by local Storm Troopers on Sunday. The featured speakers were local Nazi Party officials and members who held seats in the Reichstag. Nazi propaganda and recruitment efforts were centralized, but local party groups were essential to the political and popular success of the NSDAP in Germany in the late 1920s-early 1930s. Events such as this nurtured the idea of national community central to Nazi ideology and contrasted it with the political and social upheaval of the current Weimar government. The Nazis received the largest vote percentage in the next national elections in 1932, the last democratic national election held in prewar Germany. On January 31, 1933, Adolf Hitler was appointed Chancellor.
