The Scary Nazi Magazine that Mixed Fashion with Fascism

Frauen Warte, the Nazi Party’s biweekly magazine for women, ran from 1935 to 1945. Each issue of Frauen Warte (translated as Women Wait) featured articles laden with propaganda designed to persuade readers to accept Hitler’s vision for Germany.

Mixed in with the propaganda, the magazine provided knitting patterns, recipes and fashion. It shows how important it was to Goebbels and Hitler to keep German women on their side. The covers alone (below) give a good idea of what the intended message was. I’ve included a sampling of magazine pages featuring fashions and other editorials below the covers.
