Reichstagung in Nürnberg 1934.
First edition. A handsome substantially photographic tribute to the 1934 Nazi party rally at Nuremberg, aiming to display the physical and military strength of the new Germany both to the German nation and the rest of the world. The numerous images cover all aspects of the rally, including images of the leaders, the reception of the world press, different factions of the Nazi party including Hitler Youth, the SA and SS, and marchers, as well as the enthusiastic crowd and images of the celebrations.
Seizing upon Nuremberg’s historical role as centre of command, some images of traditional kingly and imperial garb are included, tacitly showing that Hitler is following in a legacy of legitimate rule.
