The topic of this thesis is the Nazis propagandas use of the Deutsche Reichsbahn (German Empire Railway), presented by the examples of the German railways centenary in 1935 and the Olympic Games in 1936. Firstly, the foundations, means, and goals of Nazi propaganda are analysed, followed by their impact on the Deutsche Reichsbahn. The railway was the most important means of mass transportation, used by the National Socialist regime to illustrate strength, vigour, and power development, and therefore played a key role in Nazi propaganda. Not only were its technological innovations co-opted by Nazi propaganda, but also the advertising in the form of the Reichsbahns calendar the railways most important promotional publication increasingly highlighted the Nazi ideology. In 1935, the centenary of the first German railway journey provided the opportunity to celebrate technology, but most importantly the National Socialist regime. The occasion of the jubilee lead to a list of publications, such as the two editions of the anniversary publication Hundert Jahre Deutsche Eisenbahn (One Hundred Years of German Railways). Furthermore, the Reichsbahn exhibition between July and October 1935 as well as the rail vehicle parade on 8 December 1935 depicted the socialisation of technology and Nazi policy. During the Olympic Winter Games held in Garmisch-Partenkirchen from 6 to 16 February 1963 and the Olympic Summer Games in Berlin from 1 to 16 August 1936, transportation and structural engineering were showcased by the Nazi regime again. Illustrated in propaganda and pictorial language, the Deutsche Reichsbahns performance was meant to characterise Germany as a progressive and thus presumedly politically successful nation.
