REICHSPARTEITAG
(REICH PARTY CONVENTION)

The Reich's Party Convention Rally or Nuremberg Rally, as it is better known in English, was the annual celebration and propaganda show piece for the Nazi Party and was held every year from 1923 to 1938 (exclusively in Nuremberg from 1927). Nuremberg was situated at the centre of the Reich where the Nazi base was strong and the local organiser, Julius Streicher had strong connections to the local Franconian police force who were sympathetic to the Nazi cause.
