Nuremberg Rallies

The Nuremberg Rallies
The Nuremberg Rallies

They started in 1923 on a small scale, but from 1933, Nazi rallies were held annually at purpose-built grounds in Nuremberg.

These military gatherings would involve hundreds of thousands of Nazis, including members of the Party, armed forces and youth groups.

The rallies can be seen as propaganda aimed to show German people and those abroad that their country was powerful, ordered, and under the complete control of the Nazis.

Features of the Nuremberg Rallies included:

  • Nazis in immaculate military dress
  • marches by soldiers with flags, accompanied by drums
  • torchlight processions
  • speeches by Hitler and other leading Nazis
