Project Postcard February 1943 - German Reich Advertising for the German colonies back

Propaganda was an important means of influencing people by the Nazis in the Third Reich. This also included postcards like this one from 1943. It shows not only a beach in a German colony in Africa, but also the following saying on the back:

“Eigene Kolonien, eigene Überseeprovinzen sind eine Notwendigkeit für Deutschland. Deutscher, denke an deine Kolonien.”

What means:

“Own colonies, own overseas provinces are a necessity for Germany. German, think of your colonies.”

Usage: in Germany only, with a Hitler-Stamp on it and cancellation in Spremberg.
