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