The Radio was the most important form of communication at the time • The Nazis produced cheap radios so that 70% of German homes had one • These radios could only receive Nazi stations • They were also in workplaces and on street corners • All work was to stop when the Fuhrer spoke on the radio

  10. The Nazis also controlled all newspapers, all cinemas and every other source of information • This meant that most Germans only read good things about the Nazis • For example – the Nazis had done so well in reducing unemployment
