While I was on holiday in Germany some time ago, I visited the Jewish Museum in Berlin (in the middle of the Holocaust Memorial). I bought this book from there; it is naturally a reprint, but I still find it very fascinating. As war propaganda in general.

Struwwelhitler. A Nazi Story Book by Doktor Schrecklichkeit (1941)

to the Story of the Nazi Boys.

Now twenty months had passed away,
And still contentedly they play
With little Bolshies dressed in red,
But when the twenty-first had sped
Poor Adolf's conscience pricks: he rants
And kicks his playmates in the pants,
And weeps: - "You made me love you, beast!
I didn't want to in the least,
But Europe thus I had to save
To do its duty as my slave,
And tremble at my august nod
For I'm the good old German God."
