Overview

'Hitler's Day of German Art 1938 - The Programme of the Procession' provides a unique insight into the very little known celebrations, which took place at each opening of the annual Great German Art Exhibition from 1937 to 1944. This visitor programme booklet provides a comprehensive listing of all parts of the procession including descriptions, images and a map showing the route of the procession.

The Day of German Art usually took place in July and celebrations lasted three days, starting on a Friday. The Sunday marked the climax with the official opening of the exhibition in the House of German Art and a large procession entitled '2,000 Years of German Culture' moved through the streets of Munich. The procession illustrated German history, legends and myths and how they were linked to the Third Reich.

The reprint of this rare book will be welcomed by scholars of the period as an indispensable primary source offering a valuable perspective on the formation and development of Nazi ideology.
