April 20th 1944 - Hitlers birthday is celebrated by Nazi propaganda


April 20th 1944: While the Third Reich daily sacrifices thousands of people in an insane war and the allies are preparing for the conquest of Nazi Germany, propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels celebrates Adolf Hitlers 55th Birthday. It is a macabre spectacle in which the speaker does not shy away to tastelessly idolize the guest of honor. Hitler is portrayed as a father figure of the people and the war as a struggle of fate and duty. The public reacts. Despite the threat of invasion on all fronts despite the unimaginable crimes committed in the concentration camps the public closes its eyes and still believes in a final victory which in reality will bring about the end of the Third Reich.
