German anti-Semitic and propaganda book: "Das Erwachende Berlin" ("The Awakening Berlin"), by Dr. Joseph Goebbels, (Munich: Verlag Franz Eher), 1934. 184pp. 9 1/2" x 12 1/2", green cloth covers with gilt title. Heavily illustrated Goebbels' propaganda piece dedicated to Nazi "martyr" Horst Wessel, shows early street fighters and the poor state of the city before Hitler's rise, attacks Jewish anarchists, actors, and "degenerate" artists, as well as jazz and black entertainers. In 1923, Hitler is introduced, as is the S.A., and the public is shown gratefully accepting packets of food and medical assistance and eagerly rallying to the Nazi cause. The text concludes with the burning of the Reichstag and Hitler assuming power. Fine.
