The Arts In Nazi Germany: Continuity, Conformity, Change
Hitler, a failed painter, had retained his youthful passion for art, architecture, and Wagnerian music throughout his life as apparent in the central role of culture and arts in the ideology and propaganda of National Socialism from the early years of the movement until the last months of the Third Reich in 1945. Hitler and his followers believed that art and culture were expressions of race, and that "Aryans" alone were capable of creating true art and preserving true German culture. These and other aspects are explored in this volume whose authors - Michael Kater, Alan Steinweis, Pamela Potter, Frank Trommler, Eric Rentschler, and Jonathan Petropoulos - are among the most important authorities on the history of the arts in the Third Reich. The result is a volume that offers students and interested readers a brief but focused introduction to a crucial aspect of Nazi Germany.
