Summary/Abstract: During the German occupation of Estonia (1941-44) the dissemination of war propaganda was one of the essential means in the German efforts of strengthening their position in the country. By the use of propagandistic means, the German holders of power tried to overcome the opposition of the Estonians and make them both loyal to German rule and willing to promote German war endeavors. On the basis of surviving historical documents it is evident that German propaganda efforts were successful to a certain degree, but in many cases they met distrust and rejection by the local people.
