Attached leaf: Chart showing organization of German propaganda organization under the Ministry of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda. Enclosed with No. 293. All newspapers either owned or controlled by National Socialists; publication of any item displeasing to Nazis means suppression of paper; Jewish editors removed; Nazis secured control of radio by accusing heads of broadcasting service of misuse of money and imprisoning them; programs now extremely nationalistic in character; no Jews or Jewish material used; 10 to 15 million radio listeners in Germany; manufacturers now producing inexpensive set and aim is a radio in every home; Nazi takeover of theaters and film industry not difficult, because government subsidies needed for survival; only plays or films which are Nazi approved may be shown.
