Showcasing the Third Reich: The Nuremberg Rallies Paperback / softback
A fully illustrated study of the notorious Nuremberg rallies and the part they played in the Nazis' quest to establish the 1000 Year Third Reich.
Between 1923 and 1938 the Nazis held ten `Reich National Party Conventions' in the city of Nuremberg.
Each rally was bigger than the last, with the number of visitors growing to over half a million, this growth reflecting the spread of National Socialism across Germany.
This book reveals how the rallies were organised, what the daily schedules were, who spoke at them and who attended.
It also explores the development of the Rally Grounds under Albert Speer, the importance of the rallies in Joseph Goebbels' propaganda campaign and the story of Leni Riefenstahl's filming of the rallies, in particular the Triumph of the Will in 1934.
Using over 140 dramatic and informative images, both of the rallies and Nuremberg today, author Andrew Rawson provides new insight into the most spectacular propaganda exercises since the games of Ancient Rome.
