Overview

Hitler's Day of German Art 1939 provides a unique inside into the very little known celebrations which took place at each opening of the annual Great German Art Exhibition from 1937 to 1944 usually during the month of July.

The celebrations of the Day of German Art lasted three days and always began on a Friday. The last day, a Sunday, was the climax of these celebrations. On this day the Great German Art Exhibition was opened in the House of German Art and a large procession entitled 2,000 years of German Culture moved through the streets of Munich. This procession was meant to give insight into German history, legends and myths and how they are linked to the Third Reich.

This reprint of the exhibition catalogue 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.
