German propaganda in the USSR

Visual agitation of the German Ministry of Propaganda aimed at the inhabitants of the USSR. Posters and photographs of the Great Patriotic War. It is obvious that dissident liberoids learned a lot from the Reich Minister of German propaganda, Joseph Goebbels.

German propaganda in the USSR

German agitation on the streets of the occupied Soviet city.

German social advertising

Farewell to his brother, a volunteer of the SS 14 Division. Western Ukraine, May 1944.

Selection of passes from the High Command of the German Armed Forces, for defectors

Here and the promises of good treatment, immediate medical care, the provision of food and drink, a job in the specialty or entry into the ROA (Russian Liberation Army) to choose from. Exhortations that there will be nothing for relatives. Surrender is offered both alone and in groups. The validity of the pass is not limited. Yes, what is there, you can give up and without gaps - we allow! Say the password - “Bayonet to the ground” and go through. And after all, many were led ...

Rules of conduct for defectors ...

Rules of behavior of the pilot defector.

The authors of the leaflet do not bother - give up without a pass. The appeal is good.

Leaflets addressed to the Red Army, on the front side have a propaganda text, photograph, caricature, designed to persuade the German side to switch. They promise good treatment, food, medical care, work, and most importantly - life. Political leaders are all lying, war is lost, so why is it pointless to die? - about the meaning. On the back of the leaflets for the Red Army, as a rule, a pass is printed, in order to motivate to surrender even more strongly.

What happiness, finally be in captivity!

They are agitating to go to Germany to work, in fact, into slavery.

Appeal to the Ukrainian mothers, with a call not to let the children go to the partisans.

The call does not help the "partisan bandits."

Fig from the Red Army for the partisans. Naturally, given that the guerrilla movement developed the NKVD.

Sh.VZ. - abbreviation “bayonet to the ground”

    The fascists came up with something weak motivation: preserving life, various material benefits. Here you are not there, this is not a geyropa, here these numbers do not work. It was better to learn the materiel. True, it turned out cleverly with the Caucasus ..

      But today millions would be bought for such a thing, it’s a pity!
      VKontakte in general demos with Hitler are gaining popularity, there is always some renegade "anti-adviser".

      Very reminiscent of a chapter from a history textbook, bl-d-cue, I'll tell you a textbook, they say, "" "" Russia is now free from the totalitarian Soviet regime, people learned about the high standards of life in the REST OF THE WORLD (see the poster !!!!) .... "" "

      In short, a huge mass of people have already been littered with the brains of Fashkovo propaganda, which we seemed to be convinced of a victory over.

      Not all German propaganda was so primitive. Read the book - "The Everyday Life of the Population of Russia during the Occupation", there are examples of newspaper publications ... But in fact, the author is right, all modern exposers and liberals denouncing Russia and the USSR at the suggestion of the relevant departments of psychological warfare. The US did not come up with anything new ... in general, just a developed plagiarism from Goebbels ... they even used the same organizations ...
      1. NTS-Nazi propaganda organization. Curators Office Goebbels. headquarters in Müschen. National Labor Union.
      After the war, the NTS. CIA curators and comrade Gelen. Headquarters - Munich. People's Labor Union. The staff is unchanged. Solzhenitsyn also collaborated with her ...

      2. “Anti-Bolshevik Bloc of Peoples” (ABN, Ukraine. Anti-Bolshevik Bloc of Peoples, English Anti-Bolshevik Bloc of Nations)

      The formation of the bloc dates back to the so-called First Conference of the enslaved peoples of the East of Europe and Asia, held on the initiative of the leadership of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists Stepan Bandera (OUN (B) on November 21-22, 1943 in Rivne, where members of the OUN, representing 13 peoples of the USSR, "enslaved to the Soviet empire ”, agreed on a joint struggle against the“ common enemy ”-“ Russian communism ”.

      On April 16, 1946, the organizational design of the bloc took place in Munich, which subsequently expanded. The goal of the ABN was to eliminate the Communists from power and to divide the USSR into national states. The block includes:
      1. Committee “Free Armenia”
      2. Bulgarian National Front
      3. Belarusian Central Council
      4. Cossack national liberation movement
      5. Croatian national liberation movement
      6. Czech Freedom Movement - Czech National Committee
      7. Estonian Liberation Movement - Union of Estonian Freedom Fighters
      8. Georgian National Organization
      9. Hungarian Liberation Movement
      10. Latvian Association for the Fight against Communism
      11. Lithuanian revival movement
      12. Slovak Liberation Committee
      13. National Turkestan Union Committee
      14. Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (Bandera Movement) - United Hetman Organization
      15. For the freedom of Vietnam (entered in 1970)
      16. Free Cuba (entered in 1970)
      Since 1967, the block was part of the World Anti-Communist League.

      According to American scholars S. Anderson and J. L. Anderson: “The Anti-Bolshevik Bloc of Peoples was the largest and most significant umbrella for former Nazi collaborators around the world” [13]. Headed by ABN: Ya.S. Stetsko - from 1946 to 1986 and Ya.I. Mizyka-Stetsko - from 1986 until the termination of the organization’s activities “in connection with the achievement of its goals” in 1996

      Goebbels. in turn. used the development of Anglo-French propaganda of the 19th century ... even Napoleonic ...

        There were, in fact, the whole of Ukraine, who survived the famine, but I do not want to talk about them. Quite a lot of people who sincerely believe in communism, the need to defend their homeland, by the will of history, brought to a state of doom, bestiality, I mean the Second Shock Army, the grouping surrounded near Kharkov, Rzhev yes maloli, the entire 41-42g of meat was stopped by the Wehrmacht. In such situations, this propaganda was IN MAST. Seychast then sitting in front of the monitor it is easy to talk, and God forbid to be in the place of those to whom these "leaflets" were addressed .In fact, the choice they had was not great.

          The fact that they beat us first. and then we beat them, and also doesn’t hurt to change rhetoric?
          If you sympathize with people and talk about the difficulties of choice, the effectiveness of German propaganda - just say that - you can’t argue with that ... but the old Hitler song about meat. so beloved by the liberals, it completely repels any specter of interest in your words.

        Well, and some narrow-minded or unscrupulous little people are being led to this propaganda so far ... here you are. for example .... like that. that propaganda was quite effective, the main thing. so that a person with a rotten little soul gets under its influence ... congratulations! :)))

And yet, what a soul you have, you will understand only when you find yourself in a similar "life situation". Do not forget to put a minus to PATRIOT BLY, two inches from the pot.

          If they had fought, judge for yourself or sit in well-fed America or go to fight for something, which in essence is not clear. (On the side of the coalition, they also did not fight in the vast majority) And another thing is to run along the steppes for 5-10 people a week, cartridges, not officers (I mean the Kharkov boiler), without water and you live until the first German motorcyclist. Understand that I do not condone these people, but I won’t even judge from my 57 years, everyone made their choice, and there it’s not about the homeland and it went on to live or die. Moreover, in battle this is one thing (the world is red and death) and quite another when you can be killed by your own, what would you eat (2Urr army) and go and choose it.

      By the way. our special services. In reporting on the moods among the occupied territories freed from captivity and the population, they noted that some negative cliches were still driven into their heads. like anti-Jewish sentiments and other similar ones that have never been seen before ...

    Hello all.
    Allow me to quote an excerpt from "Barbarossa" by V. Pikul.
    Very suitable in my opinion:
    Voronin took out a German leaflet from a briefcase, showing it from a distance to the secretary of the regional committee — read, if literate. Chuyanov saw only two lines of a part-time fret:



    Chuyanov kept this leaflet and showed it to General Gerasimenko, commander of the Stalingrad Military District:

    “Well, isn't it impudence, huh?”

    Gerasimenko ran a leaf through his eyes and said that Goebbels, as a propagandist, was still far from Old Man Makhno:

    - That was an agitator! Fiery ... I remember we were chasing his gangs, and the Old Man was chasing us. On the carts. I was young then. Here the Old Man drives us in the tail and in the mane, you look back, and on his carts - the slogan: "X ... you will leave!". Then they began to drive the dad. We overtake, and on the carts of the Makhnovists again a poster rinses: "X ... you will catch up!". This, I’ll tell you, is such agitation that it made its way to the liver. Clearly and convincingly. Goebbels did not think of such a thing ...

    The collapse of the Soviet Union became possible (except for betrayal) due to the loss of our propaganda.

    Pioneer cries and rulers lost to dzhins and chewing gum. Party gatherings and social competitions lost to rock concerts and fashion salons. During the war, our propaganda was at its best and defeated your propaganda. That’s why they won in the war.

      our agitation in World War II was better, the simplest proof of this is the victory in 1945
      our agitation began to surrender only after the death of Stalin, although it was truthful but treasury and unreadable, while the advertisement of the Western way of life shone like a ray of something new

    Finally, the Pickpocket Liberals in the person of Medvedev, agreed with the Liberals with the house-makers in the face, a man with a capital letter. To be privatized, and for starters, the breadwinners benefit:

    So, meet - mortgage auctions v. 2.0 Lite:

    The Federal Property Management Agency is developing a new privatization mechanism, said Ivan Aksyonov, deputy director of the agency. The agency offers banks to lend to buyers of state assets on the security of privatized shares, negotiations are being held with banks from the top 20, he explains: “In this way we want to stimulate demand for assets sold by the state.”

    This is not about large public companies, but first of all about small and medium-sized companies, Aksenov warned, legal entities and individuals can become their buyers.

    Now the Federal Property Management Agency manages 1700 companies with revenues of up to 60 million rubles. per year, follows from the presentation of the working group on building an international financial center in Moscow (Vedomosti has it): 1100 companies are wholly owned by the state, in the remaining 600 its share is less than 2%. Within six months, you need to analyze the condition of all these companies, find out which ones can be attributed to medium-sized businesses, sanitize and then sell, the group said.

    Now, due to the lack of official idiology, our propaganda is not rolling.

    The hall of the National Socialist Congress in Nuremberg in 1936 was decorated with the slogan: "Propaganda helped us to come to power. Propaganda will help us retain power. Propaganda will help us conquer the whole world." IMMEDIATELY after the National Socialist Party came to power in Germany, the Hitlerite leadership formed the Ministry of Public Education and Propaganda headed by Joseph Goebbels.
    In an attempt to drive a wedge between the "democracies" and the Soviet Union, Goebbels coined the term "Iron Curtain." After the meeting of Roosevelt, Churchill and Stalin in Yalta, he wrote an article: "Year 2000". Goebbels prophesied that if the Wehrmacht lay down its arms, the Soviet Union would occupy Eastern Europe, over which the "Iron Curtain" would immediately fall ...
    But the historical wrong of fascist Germany is undeniable and six billion German leaflets on the Eastern Front did not save them ...

    German propaganda was at work. From the words of my father, born in 1918, a direct participant in the War from the first day (Malin, Zhytomyr region) to March 1944, deputy commander of a machine gun platoon ("Maxims"), the following is known. During the retreat, in particular, across the territory of the Krasnodar Territory, the troops were recruited by the local population. They retreated with him further (Kharkov, Stalingrad). On New Year's Eve 1942-43, in the area of ​​the Beketovka farm (Stalingrad), two machine-gun crews (from the Cossacks) with weapons fled to the side of the Germans, exposed as secrets. The platoon commander was killed long ago and my father (and he is the son of a priest) was rattled by the investigator at night for more than a month with questions: why didn't he run away with them, with what task did the priest's dog stay? "After this incident, he was never awarded again, apparently enrolled in the "unreliable", although earlier for Kerch - "ZBZ", then - "For Courage", which in itself at that time was a great rarity. We are not judges for them now, but ran to the Germans as "with passes" and without such until the very end of the War, and after it too.
