From National Socialist Germany
VOLKISCHER BEOBACHTER [Munich, Germany]. 8 - 12 pp folio. The official National Socialist "kampfblatt", or "newspaper of the struggle." Goebbel's enormously sophisticated daily newspaper is filled with the philosophy of National Socialism and its applications throughout the Reich and the world. A study in the official creation of "reality", this newspaper's stunning effectiveness in shaping public opinion has, alas, become the role model for many later imitators. Rather than simply report false news, the editors also slanted the articles so that the day's events appeared to support the party line. This paper was a pioneer in creating the seamless illusion that whatever the powers that control the government say is true must be the truth and in turning history into self-serving fictions.

Thanks for visiting my web page. I hope you have enjoyed browsing my catalog, and have found it useful and informative. This listing contains but a very small sampling of our large inventory of Twentieth Century and foreign newspapers. I normally try to have at least several hundred different items in each of my catalogs for my customers to choose from, but they tend to sell out so rapidly that it is hard to keep up with the demand!
