Nazi German Propaganda Reich Minister. He was one of the closest advisers to Nazi German Dictator Adolph Hitler, and was responsible for the dissemination of the virulently anti-semantic propaganda that marked the Third Reich's time in power. He controlled all state news outlets, as well as all cultural sources such as publishing and movie making. He and his wife committed suicide after killing their children one day after Hitler killed himself in his Berlin bunker in 1945. Buried in unmarked graves, the remains were removed by Soviet forces in 1970, cremated and scattered.
