Julius Streicher was one of the Nazi Party's earliest members. Among other efforts, he founded the violently antisemitic newspaper, Der Stürmer. At its height, the paper was circulated among hundreds of thousands of Germans. Der Stürmer could also be seen displayed in public spaces across Germany.
Streicher was later indicted in the war crimes trials. For his influential role in inciting hatred and violence, he was convicted of crimes against humanity.
