Template:Unreferenced The Soviet Paradise (german original title "Sowjetparadies") was the name of an exhibition and a propaganda film, which was organized by the Reichspropagandaleitung of the NSDAP and was displayed from May 8 to June 21, 1942 in the Lustgarten in Berlin. Its goal was to show "poverty, misery, depravity and need" in the Soviet Union and to justify the war against the Soviet Union. According to official information, 1.3 million people visited the show.

On May 18 a Jewish-Communist resistance group called "Baum-Group" organized an arson, that only caused little damage. At least 33 people were executed. A short propaganda film was created to supplement the exhibition.
