Unique Collection of 116 Original "Parole der Woche" National Socialist Propaganda Posters
Herausgegeben von der Reichspropagandaleitung der NSDAP im Zentralverlag der NSDAP. Franz Eher Nachf. Druck: M. Müller und Sohn KG, München 1942 - "Parole der Woche" (Slogan of the Week) was a National Socialist poster that was published weekly between 1936 and 1943. The Reichspropagandaleitung issued a "Wahlkampfwandzeitung" (election wall-newspaper) for the "Reichstagswahl" in 1936 with such a positive effect that it was developed as a propaganda tool. The large (approx. 2.5 x 4 ft) numbered posters were printed in offset color and displayed in civic buildings, bulletin boards and public places throughout Germany. The first issue was published on 29 March, 1936, the last appeared on February 25, 1943 (approximately 400 posters were issued). Originally printed with text only, the graphic design changed over time incorporating illustrations and photographs. Illustrators and designers remained anonymous. The pro-German content was usually heavily anti-Semitic, anti-bolshevist, anti-English & American. A smaller poster-stamp version was also issued which was usually pasted on envelopes & postcards. [We have some examples]. Seven titles, representative of the 116 posters:"Wer dieses Zeichen trägt, ist ein Feind unseres Volkes"Der Führer ist der Sieg"Hetze und Fälschung - die Waffe der jüdischen Journaille"Churchill - Der Mann, der den Bombenkrieg gegen die Zivilbevölkerung erfunden hat"Sie haben den Krieg gewollt"Stafford Cripps - Ein Hetzer plaudert aus der Schule"Churchills Lügenstrategie"Despite its importance, not much material has been published about this highly effective Nazi propaganda tool. Franz-Josef Heyen wrote perhaps the most important work in regards to the posters. His book was published in 1983 by Deutscher Taschebuch Verlag under the title "Parole der Woche: Eine Wandzeitung im Dritten Reich 1936 - 1943." The 142 page book accompanies this collection. For his book Heyen selected 100 out of the 400 published. 31 posters from our collection are pictured in his work (see list below). Also includes a CD-ROM with pictures of all 116 posters in our possession.Provenance: The posters come from two contemporary sources; One private collection was stored in the basement of a German pharmacy where they most likely had been displayed during the Third Reich. The other collection came from a military source. Verso of a poster with marginal note in pencil: "An Schließerposten mit der Bitte um Ausschmückung des Stabsgebäudes. I C." Majority of posters neatly folded. Edges and folds of some posters partly creased, few closed tears (some repaired with tape), some corners chipped not affecting text or image, few with pin needle and punch holes (minimal loss of text and image due to punch holes), sporadic foxing. Overall in very good condition with bright and crisp illustrations and text.
