World War Two Propaganda: Donald Duck as a Nazi in Der Fuehrer's Face

Was Donald Duck A Nazi?

Yes. Briefly. And Unhappily.

It would surely have been difficult for the average American to comprehend the reality of everyday life in Nazi Germany.

Although a transparently political cartoon that could be best described as propaganda, ‘Der Fuehrer’ makes a good fist out of vividly depicting that life.

We see a day in the life of Nazi Donald Duck. All he wants is a quiet existence but he cannot escape the constant demands and pressures of the Nazi state.
