    Hi Lauren,

    I would be wary when discussing "The Hitler Myth" as it is mainly based around the popularity of Hitler and his image earlier on in the regime. However, when discussing "The Hitler Myth", a discussion combining Propaganda and how it contributed to this image of Hitler would be best. The Hitler Myth became less important later on particularly after 1939 due to the formation of the RSHA and the centralisation of the State Terror Apparatus. I will also be sitting this paper next week so it will be interesting to see what comes up!

    Best of luck,
    DBR247
