This chapter discusses the effects of the anti-Nazi crusade on Munzenberg's propaganda network. The political developments in Germany at the time breathed new life into the network, but at the same time uprooted the institutional framework that had so long sustained it. The anti-Nazi crusade may seem, at first glance, to have been an ideal vehicle for a new Munzenberg mandate. Hitler was gradually building up a dictatorial regime almost unprecedented in its brutality—a left-wing propagandist's dream. In totalitarian politics, however, appearances can be deceptive. Once the furor over the Reichstag fire counter-trial and trial had died down, Stalin and Hitler made peace, agreeing not to let the propaganda battle spoil the productive diplomatic and economic contacts already linking their two authoritarian governments.
