With his ability to convince the public to support the Nazi uprising using newly developed communications strategies based on human psychology and sociology (public relations), Goebbels became known as the “spin doctor” for his mischievous and misleading wordplay.

As stated in a source of material for the Youth Leaders, “People differ therefore in more than their physical characteristics… their inner relationships must therefore be studied. Then we will clearly recognize the vast difference between those of German blood and the Jews…We then understand human inequality.” (Bytwerk).

Nazi propaganda influenced the masses in ways that were cynically genius.
Idealists present a particular predicament because the nature of their principles excuses them from blame for the destruction, which they certainly cause, which is why it is described as "a kind of insanity."

The character of the young American Alden Pyle is naïve and convinced in the rightness of his deeds, even though he actually brings on a tragedy. His innocence poses a problem in that his good intentions informed by the simplistic belief that the world can be fixed and things set right only succeeds in killing people. On the war grounds, the only matter of significance is survival, not idealization.
The Nazi party used film propaganda to brainwash the German people, distract them from the harsh reality of the Nazi party, and attempt to intimidate the enemy. Hitler knew propaganda entailed mass persuasion and he knew just how to get his message out there; film. It was through the use of propaganda, largely film that made the Nazi party so powerful as they redefined propaganda. Psychological Effects Hitler’s strategy was to exploit those who he considered unworthy through the use of preexisting stereotypes. These stereotypes were already familiar to the population and by bringing national attention to the stereotypes through the use of film the Nazi party was able to make the population believe the exaggerated negative stereotypes to be true.
By preventing the public from hearing their views and by presenting ‘undesirable’ people negatively, Goebbels managed to dehumanise Nazi enemies and through this separation allowed Germany’s people to believe that their wretched life could really be a heaven.

Through the manipulation of information and people the Nazi party succeeded in making the German people complicit in their plans. By surrounding everyone with the same ideas and ideals independent thought was effectively removed and the only choice was an acceptance of the Nazi’s and an acceptance of their beliefs. Film and radio showed the people what to think and the ‘Hitler myth’ bred by Goebbels gave them someone to lead, it was not until the war had ended and Germany was exposed to the world once more that it was possible how far from their principles they had erred.
Propaganda within Nazi Germany was therefore taken to a new and frequently perverse level and was a crucial part of Hitler’s plans (Welch). He claimed, "Propaganda tries to force a doctrine on the whole people... Propaganda works on the general public from the standpoint of an idea and makes them ripe for the victory of this idea," in his book Mein Kampf, in which he first advocated the use of propaganda to spread the ideals of the Nazi party, including racism and anti-Semitism (Welch). Hitler and the Nazis had two main propaganda tasks. First, they hoped to ensure that none of the media or news presented in Germany contained anything hostile or damaging to the Nazi Party.
Hitler rose to power, gained German support, and deceived others through both propaganda and striking fear into the hearts of various groups of people. Remembering this era of lies and manipulation will help us prepare for any future threats that may spawn from propaganda. By doing this we will be better able to differentiate between false propaganda and the truth. Works Cited Britannica, E. (2014). Gestapo.
The propaganda, which was deliberately aimed at the masses, effectively served several purposes. It portrayed Hitler as a strong leader to whom every German should give their loyalty, reinforced beliefs of Aryan supremacy, the Jewish menace and communist danger. Additionally, these forms of propaganda targeted the emotions of the German people and therefore pushed the goals of the Nazi party in relation to military and territorial expansion.
It is labeled as a documentary. Nevertheless the film tries to impose the basic ideals and understanding of Nazism to masses by using various techniques. From my point of view the film is more than a documentary but an absolute propaganda of Nazism. It promotes Hitler and his ideals as they are the ideals of a whole nation. It is directed by Leni Riefenstahl and documents the Nazis Party Rally.
In wars, propaganda used to create anger like racism and derogatory to make enemy agitation. The most success and famous propagandandist is Dr. Goebbels, the “Evil Genius” of Nazi propaganda (Philip.M, 2013, p. 1). He helped Adolf Hitler came to power through the use of Goebbels's modern propaganda methods. He exploits people emotion and hiring people to implement his modern propaganda methods. He was appointed Minister of National Enlightenment after Hitler Adolf been in power.
