ORIGIN

Founded on 14 March 1933, a few months after the Nazi
Nazi
seizure of power by Adolf Hitler
Adolf Hitler
's government, it was headed by Reich Minister Joseph Goebbels
Joseph Goebbels
. The role of the new ministry, which set up its offices in the 18th-century Ordenspalais
Ordenspalais
across from the Reich Chancellery , was to centralise Nazi
Nazi
control of all aspects of German cultural and intellectual life. An unstated goal was to present to other nations the impression that the Nazi
Nazi
Party had the full and enthusiastic backing of the entire population. It was responsible for controlling the German news media , literature , visual arts , filmmaking , theatre , music , and broadcasting .

PROPAGANDA

As the central office of Nazi
Nazi
propaganda , it comprehensively supervised and regulated the culture and mass media of Nazi
Nazi
Germany. A major focus of the propaganda was Hitler himself, who was glorified as a heroic and infallible leader and became the focus of a cult of personality . Much of this was spontaneous, but some was stage-managed as part of Goebbels' propaganda work. An example of the latter would be the 1934 Nuremberg Rally. Hitler was the focus and his moves were carefully choreographed. The rally was the subject of the film Triumph of the Will
Triumph of the Will
, one of several Nazi
Nazi
propaganda films directed by Leni Riefenstahl
Leni Riefenstahl
. It won the Gold Medal at the 1935 Venice Film Festival

. Goebbels and his ministry were involved in both the rally and the film production.
