The article deals with main mottoes and slogans of national-socialists in fascist Germany; it examines their origin and development up to carrying them out into life. A number of expressions are taken by Nazis from Christian vocabulary or right from the Bible (e.g. ”He that is not with us is against us”). In order to attract workers, the Nazi party in its propaganda, especially at the very beginning used also the slogans of socialism and working-class movement, but before its coming to power anticapitalistic slogans were taken away. However the Nazi party in the course of all the period of its activities, since the 20ees and up to capitulation converted into life anti-Semitic slogans both veiled (“fi nal solution”) and outspoken ones, calling upon to murder, taken, among others, from Hitler’s speeches, from his book and refl ected in the posters, in Nazi’s songs, disseminated in Mass Media. After the Nuremberg process all the Nazi symbols including slogans were forbidden. But in different countries right–wing terroristic and neo - Nazi organizations spring up, which try to use the Nazi’s heritage. Symbols, mottoes and slogans are codifi ed, but the heart of the point is the same. As a matter of fact IS (Islam State) and the like organizations using the same methods as Nazi do, are neo-fascist ones.
