Nürnberg Rallies


Nürnberg Rallies

Massive rallies held by the Nazi Party in Nürnberg, Ger., to showcase its power. After smaller rallies at party conventions in 1923 and 1927, the first large-scale rally was held in 1929 and featured the nationalistic pageantry that marked subsequent annual rallies (1933–38). Attended by hundreds of thousands of Nazis, the rallies were carefully staged to reinforce party enthusiasm with martial songs, massed banners and flags, goose-step marches, torchlight processions, and lengthy orations by Adolf Hitler and other Nazi leaders.
