Poster using a photo of Adolf Hitler by his official photographer, Heinrich Hoffmann

Modern techniques of propaganda—including strong images and simple messages—helped propel Austrian-born Adolf Hitler from being a little known extremist to one of the leading candidates for Germany's presidency in 1932. Heinrich Hoffmann, Hitler’s official photographer, created this 1932 election poster. The style of this poster is similar to those of some film stars of the era.
