The article presents the perception gained by Americans of the party rallies (Parteitags) held in 1933–1938. It includes opinions of American visitors on the organisation of such rallies congresses and their feelings towards their Nazi hosts. There are also reasons of increased popularity of Parteitags among observers from the United States explained, together with an explication to what extent the propaganda of the Third Reich was effective and translated into the growth of pro-Nazi sympathies of American citizens.
