He first met with the Nazi Party in 1923.

Who was Hitler’s propaganda minister? The answer to this question is given by Paul Joseph Goebbels. Goebbels was born on October 29, 1897 in the town of Reidt in Mönchengladbach, Germany. Joseph studied history and literature at the Universities of Munich, Freiburg, Würzburg and Bonn on a scholarship from the Albertus Magnus Society. He became acquainted with the Nazi Party in 1923.

In 1924 he became editor-in-chief of the newspaper Völkische Freiheit. In 1925 he joined the Nazi Party. He quickly rose in the party. In 1926 he met with Adolf Hitler one on one and became the party’s regional manager in Berlin. With the help of the SA and Nazi newspapers, he wrote provocative articles about the communist and socialist parties in the country. Later he was appointed to the post of editor-in-chief of the National Socialist Brief newspaper. On October 28, 1926, he took off and became editor-in-chief of the newspaper Der Angriff.

After this rapid rise, Goebbels managed to get into parliament on March 20, 1928. In 1930 he became a Reich propaganda officer. In 1933, the Nazis came to power, and Goebbels took over as “Minister of Public Information and Propaganda.” His first task was to burn over 20,000 books written by Jewish authors in a square in Berlin. Over time, he took control of all the news outlets in Germany.

He completely controlled the media.


The first task of the Ministry of Propaganda was to take over the broadcasting facilities in the occupied countries and broadcast material prepared using the available announcers in order to win the trust of the occupied public. Joseph Goebbels and his department controlled all aspects of the media, both in the occupied countries and in Germany.

At this time, demonstrations, speeches and party rallies continued; short propaganda films were made, his speeches were broadcast on the radio. As the war progressed, Hitler appeared less and less on the air and spoke in public. That is why Joseph increasingly became the voice of the Nazi regime. From May 1940, his editorials were read aloud on the radio and broadcast on Das Reich. Although he knew that radio was the most effective propaganda tool, he knew that films were also an effective propaganda tool.

By the end of 1942, Joseph decided that 80% of his films should be light entertainment and 20% propaganda. In November 1942 he was appointed Gau’s commissioner for the defense of the Reich. On January 15, 1943, he was appointed by Hitler to the top echelon of the Air Attack Damage Committee. After the defeat of Nazi Germany in the war became apparent, Joseph committed suicide.

What is the big lie theory?


The Big Lie Theory, also known as the Goebbels principle; if something wrong is repeated more than once, a person will accept as true what appears to be false. From the past to the present, people either accept or refuse to believe after gathering information. People always need strong people and people around them. Thus, they become obedient to them without realizing it, and after a while they begin to believe what they say. At first, these things may seem wrong, but over time they are subconsciously verified. The mind of a person who hears the same things all the time inevitably becomes confused and after a while begins to take them for the truth.

Today, this theory of lies is applied, especially in politics and the media. For example; News about the military actions of different countries in Turkey and news in the US or Russia are very different from each other. Therefore, citizens become part of this propaganda, believing the news and politicians in their country.
