Came across this recently one of the iconic images of the Third Reich a powerful seduction tool.
Ian Kershaw talked of "The Power of Aesthetics" and it is easy to see how youth was seduced influenced and made ready for indoctrination.
27 feet by 6 this is large by any man's standards from Nuremberg this is where you might have found it and its like.

When you look at the youngsters who wasted their lives dying in Berlin in 1945 the nature of the seduction becomes almost obscene.

The colour the pomp, the noise , the music , the sense of purpose , togetherness all lent themselves to the "Iron Will of The Fuhrer" , the Pied Piper had returned with a vengeance.

Common Form (1918)
If any question why we died,
Tell them because our fathers lied.



A Dead Statesman (1924)
I could not dig, I dared not rob,
And so I lied to please the mob.
Now all my lies are proved untrue,
And I must face the men I slew.
What tale will serve me here among
Mine angry and defrauded young?

Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936)
