The Nazis

Nazism and Bolshevism: the Similarities (Literary Digest, 1933)

A look at the observations made by a correspondent for The London Observer who compared the two dominate tribes found in 1933 Berlin and Moscow. The writer was far more distracted by the similarities in their street hustle and their sloganeering rather than their shared visions in governance and culture; for example, both Nazis and Communists were attracted to restrictions involving speech, assembly and gun ownership while sharing an equal enthusiasm for May Day parades and the color red. Additionally, both totalitarians had their preferred dupes:

"Absolute ideas invariably demand victims; and the ruthless treatment which is deliberately meted out to Jews in Germany is closely paralleled by the creation in the Soviet Union of a sort of pariah caste of Lishentsi or disenfranchised persons."

Germany never celebrated May Day with public parades until Hitler came to power; May Day was made a national holiday and all employers were given the day off with pay.

Heinrich Himmler (Collier's Magazine, 1938)

A 1938 article covering the ascent of Reichfurhrer-SS Heinrich Himmler (1900 - 1945):

"Himmler has dossiers on every man of substance in Germany. Nazi party functionary, business leader, churchman, diplomat, army officer or statesman; all are nicely indexed for the day when their case histories might be needed in a hurry. Because in Germany, everyone is suspect. Some Nazis will even tell you that Himmler has a dossier on himself."

The Terror of the Nazi Stormtroopers (Literary Digest, 1933)

This piece reported that the Manchester Guardian journalists who were posted to Nazi Germany were, without a doubt, the most reliable sources on all matters involving the violence committed by those brown shirted thugs during the earliest days of Hitler's reign:

"The 'Brown terror does not exist in Germany, according to the Hitler dictatorship."

"Even to talk about it is a penal offense. But the 'Brown Terror' goes on."

Read about the German POWs who were schooled in virtues of democracy.


The 1934 German Economy (New Outlook Magazine, 1934)

The 1935 German Economy (New Outlook Magazine, 1935)

Within the cozy confines of the attached PDF is a thumbnail report concerning the Third Reich's economy during the first six months of 1935: imports, exports, bartering. They were compiled by Edward H. Collins for the editors at New Outlook magazine.

Life in Hitlerland (Ken Magazine, 1938)

"It's a prison or a concentration camp if they catch you tuned in on a forbidden radio program in Hitlerland. And they will take your driver's license away if even once you are overheard making a careless or joking remark that could be interpreted as 'out of sympathy with the spirit of the new state'. So even in the apparently private little world bounded by the turning wheels of your own closed car, you must think long and hard like a badgered witness under cross-examination, before you dare open your mouth..."
