Völkischer Beobachter was a German-language newspaper.

In 1938, Professor Henry Jones, Sr. hid himself behind a copy of Völkischer Beobachter as he stood concealed among newspaper readers at the Berlin Flughafen as he awaited the return of his son Indiana Jones with the pair of tickets that would enable their escape from Germany.[1]

Wanted by the Nazis, Jones was able to evade the forces patrolling the airport but prior to takeoff on board the D-138 zeppelin, SS colonel Ernst Vogel noticed a man engrossed in a copy of Völkischer Beobachter being held upside down. He used his swagger stick to push the paper down to reveal Jones, not wearing his glasses, momentarily confused at the pages crumpling in front of him.[1]

However, Vogel was in for a surprise of his own as the professor's son, disguised as a ticket taker, dumped the Nazi out of an open window.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Völkischer Beobachter was a real newspaper, an anti-semitic National Socialist publication for the Thule Society at the close of the 1910s later acquired and turned into a voice of propaganda for the Nazis. The periodical collapsed in the final months before Germany's defeat in World War II.[2]
