"Völkischer Beobachter"In 1920, the NSDAP acquired the Münchener Beobachter, a weekly magazine, founded in 1887, which consisted of four pages. Its name was changed into Völkischer Beobachter - Kampfblatt der nationalsozialistischen Bewegung Großdeutschlands
In the early twenties, the Völkischer Beobachter was an anti-Semitic gossip paper. Because of this nature, its publication was banned three times. The last time its publication was banned, was in 1925. 
In February 1923, the Völkischer Beobachter became the daily newspaper of the NSDAP. Alfred Rosenberg, in 1921 appointed by Adolf Hitler as chief editor, made this paper a forum for Hitler and dr. Paul Joseph Goebbels, the minister of Propaganda, while maintaining the anti-Semitic character.
In 1923, the edition of the Völkischer Beobachter was 7000 copies. From 1930, this newspaper was published in a Berlin edition and a South-Germany edition. A Viennese edition was produced from 1938. In 1941, the number of copies had risen to 1,2 million, in 1944 to 1,4 million. 
Diplomats as well as journalists read the Völkischer Beobachter to keep themselves informed about changes and developments in national-socialist politics and propaganda. 
The end of the Third Reich also meant the end of the Völkischer Beobachter.[1]
