This clearly emphasises that people in Britain from 1936 were aware of the barbarism and cruelty of the Nazi regime, which was subsequently validated through the Holocaust. Furthermore, the book’s challenge for a “vocal and insistent protest of the civilised conscience against the Nazis” evidently suggests that particular Britain’s grasped the extensive horror of the Nazi totalitarian regime and implored that the population opposed the Nazis. Thus, the publication of ‘The Yellow Spot’ suggest that people in Britain had a significant insight into the maltreatment and prosecution of the Jews which was permeated to the core by Nazi’s racist ideology.

The 1934 Nuremberg Rally was one of the first major propaganda events that Hitler staged after assuming control of the German state. Leni Riefenstahi filmed German youth and workers swearing allegiance to Hitler, who was portrayed as an artist.
