Joseph Goebbels (29 October 1897 – 1 May 1945) – German politician and Reich Minister of Propaganda in Nazi Germany from 1933 to 1945 [1].

Often, the propaganda by Goebbels used the same symbols, pictures, melodies and ideas as the soviet pro–Stalin propaganda. In certain sense, the propaganda by Goebbels was a little bit more successful: at very beginning of the extension of the World War 2 to the territory of the USSR, millions of soldiers of the Red Army were convinced and captured by the German troops.

Goebbels is often used as symbol of demagogy, misinformation and apology of dictatorship [2].
