German election material

Scope and Content

The German election material collection consists of election propaganda covering the era of the Weimar Republic, especially the final years. There are many flyers from the NSDAP, but also other parties, like the Zentrum, the SPD and the KPD.

Administrative / Biographical History

These political flyers were purchased from an antiquarian bookseller in Haarlem, Netherlands. It was the collection of a German Jewish communist, who flew to Palestine around 1936. The antiquarian bought it from his son.


The flyers are arranged chronologically by election. There are varying numbers of flyers per election. The dates in the description signify the election dates.
