BIOGRAPHY

Joseph Goebbels was bornon 29 October 1897 in Rheydt, German, is German Nazi politician. Paul Joseph Goebbels was a German politician and Minister for Public Enlightenment and Propaganda during Hitler’s rule over Germany. He played a crucial role in promoting Nazi Party’s philosophy and ideology of Hitler. Raised in a family with strict Catholic background, he could not serve in the military during the World War I on account of his physical deformity. As the district leader of the Nazi Party, he founded a weekly newspaper titled “The Attack”. Being the maker of Fuhrer myth, he employed this paper to convey Nazi Party’s message to German people. As part of his extensive media campaign for World War II, he utilized radio, films, parades and processions to propagate his message on Nazi Party. As the director of the Reich Chamber of Culture, he had total control over the cultural life of Germany. Due to the activities of this organization, a number of Jewish creative artists lost their occupation. The Nazi Party used to consider modern art as immoral and took measures to seize this art form. Being a skilled propagandist, his effective application of Reich Press Law caused removal of a number of Jewish as well as non-Nazi editors of newspapers and magazines in Germany. After realising Germany’s defeat in the War, he committed suicide.
