Quick Reference

(1897–1945)

German Nazi leader and politician. In 1933 he became Hitler's Minister of Propaganda, with control of the press, radio, and all aspects of culture. With a total disregard for the truth, he manipulated the media in order to further Nazi aims. A supporter of Hitler to the last, he committed suicide rather than surrender to the Allies.
