Arbeitertum (meaning Labour in English) was a fortnightly German newspaper aimed at working class readers and edited by Reinhold Muchow. It was founded with anti-Marxist and anti-Capitalist intentions.[1] In the early 1930s, it was sponsored by the Nazi Party and in 1933 it became the official publication of the German Labor Front.[1][2] It was thus used to explain to the working class the Party's position on labour affairs, with contributions from many party leaders.[3] Der Angriff and Der Erwerbslose were two other newspapers established by the Nazi Party for the same purpose.[3]
