Source 6 demonstrates dictatorial control as it can be inferred by the two German officers that the sign in the shop window was government placed. This means that Hitler and his cohort was essentially trying to send an ideological message to the German people. This is usually fine, but it becomes dictatorial when opposition to the message occurs and people are arrested. This can be inferred by observing the two Nazi officers standing by the sign, as well as Source 3 when obvious targets to an anti-Jew message, Jews, are slaughtered and oppressed without any opposition from the German people. This happens because either the people are taken in and support the anti-Jew message, or are too afraid to rebel against it due to the dire consequences that would probably await them.

Source 1 is pushing a very specific agenda on the public, that being women should embrace motherhood while men work. Though not entirely dictatorial, the massive support for the party by 1937 would mean that the sentiment carried by the poster could be encouraged or even forced by men. This is ambiguous but there is certainly a possibility of social engineering from this poster. It’s also worth considering that this is just one poster of thousands, many of which could share a similar message. Though social engineering isn’t necessarily totalitarian, the fascistic manner in which Nazis and the Nazi indoctrinated public perceive and participate in it is.
