Berliner Illustrirte Zeitung was a very popular tabloid newspaper published every Thursday from 1892 to 1945. It was one of the first news publication in Germany that attracted readers with eye catching photographs and could be purchased without a subscription at newsstands, in hotels and shops.
A rare color portrait of Adolf Hitler by Professor Heinrich Knirr is the cover illustration on this special 50th birthday edition of Berliner Illustrirte Zeitung dated 20 April 1939. The very heavily illustrated 11 x 15 inch, 52 page Sonderheft or Special Edition refers to Hitler as the "Creator of the Greater German Reich" and the Baumeister des Reiches (Master Builder of the German State).
There is also an interesting ad about the expansion of the Nazi owned advertising agency ALA (Anzeigen-Aktiengesellschaft) in Bohemia and Moravia, about Albania, a Kdf Theater for factory workers, the suspicious death of King Ghazi I of Iraq, motorboats of the future and photos of Hitler, Himmler, Goering, Hess, Julius Schaub, and other Nazi Party members.
There is advertising for products like Shell Oil, AEG, Siemens, Atikah and Reemtsma cigarettes, 4711 Cologne, toothpaste, shaving cream, bras and face power for ladies, shoes, and several short stories, crossword puzzles and cartoons.
Color covers on the BIZ were very uncommon. This rare 74 year old Third Reich tabloid is complete and in very good used condition.
