1936 Deutschlandfahrt

Zeppelin Post

Following the German occupation of the Rhineland in 1936, Hitler called a plebiscite for March 29, 1936, seeking ratification of the occupation and approval of a single-party list composed exclusively of Nazi candidates for the new Reichstag.

The LZ-129 Hindenburg and LZ-127 Graf Zeppelin were called upon to fly in tandem around Germany, dropping propaganda leaflets promoting the Nazi Party’s desired result.

Eight different messages exist, with additional color variations of each message.
