Eugen Hadamovsky


German politician and radio production director in Nazi Germany from 1933 to 1942. Hadamovsky authored seven propaganda books, the most significant of which was Propaganda and National Power (1933), the only book treating the general principles of propaganda published during the Third Reich.

He was an early Nazi supporter, who helped organize Nazi radio listeners and handled the technical details at many of Hitler's mass rallies. Hadamovsky joined the Nazi Party (NSDAP) in 1930; the party's propaganda leader Joseph Goebbels commissioned him to build up the right-wing Reichsverband Deutscher Rundfunkteilnehmer ("Reich association of German broadcasting participants").

He was head of the radio department in the Reich Ministry of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda from 1940, however, Minister Goebbels was not entirely pleased with him, as is evident by many references in Goebbels' diaries. In 1942 Hadamovsky was replaced and took over the position as chief of staff in the Nazi Party's Central Propaganda Office (Reichspropagandaleitung) in Berlin.

In 1943, Hadamovsky volunteered for the Wehrmacht armed forces. Toward the end of World War II, he joined the 4th SS Polizei Panzergrenadier Division and died in combat, shot through the heart, in the rank of an Obersturmführer (first lieutenant), fighting at the head of his company on the Eastern Front on 1 March 1945 at age 40.
