Julius Streicher: The Editor and Member of the Nazi party

Far-right groups and fascist political parties that spread anti-Jewish propaganda rose during the interwar period in Germany. The most infamous of these groups was the Nazi party, founded by Adolf Hitler. Julius Streicher was an early member of this party, which he joined in 1922, and created the Der Stürmer newspaper (literally, “The Striker”) the following year. Julius Streicher contributed to the antisemitic propaganda of the Nazi party by the publication of this weekly newspaper.

Condemned for Hate Propaganda

Streicher was tried during the Nuremberg trials in 1945. Although he was not directly involved in the execution of the Holocaust, he was charged for crimes against humanity for his role in spreading hatred towards Jews in his publications. He was sentenced to death by hanging.
