NAZI PARTY EVENTS: THE 'REICHSPARTY DAY OF HONOUR', NUREMBERG, GERMANY, SEPTEMBER 1936
Crowds look on, many rasing their arm in the Nazi salute, as representatives of the three armed forces parade in the arena as part of events at the 'Reichsparty Day of Honour' at Nuremberg, attended by Hitler. The 'day of honour' was actually held between 8 and 14 September.
The Second World War was the most destructive conflict in human history. Years of international tension and aggressive expansion by Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany culminated in the German invasion of Poland on 1 September 1939. Britain and France declared war on Germany two days later.
