The train station in Prague is a magnificent dark stone building with two disturbing towers.

Today is the Fuhrer's birthday - April 20,1942
- and President Hacha is going to present him with a gift from the Czech people: a medical train. ....
a joke is immediately spread around town ....

Poor Hitler!
He must be really ill if he needs a whole train to make him better ...
This is quoted in the historical novel HHhH by Laurent Binet
Those of you who have read the book can decide for yourselves if it really was a contemporary joke.

New physics in Germany.

One Gör - The maximum amount of metal that can be hung on one's chest with no risk of one's falling on the face.
One Ley - The maximum time in which one can speak without saying a single sensible sentence.
One Rust - The smallest interval of the time between the issuance of the new order and its repeal.
One Goeb - The minimum of energy required for the simultaneous switching off 100 thousand radio receivers.

Q. In which choir a singer can earn more than famous tenor Caruso?
A. In the Reichstag choir:
They perform once a year, sing only two songs (national anthem and Horst Wessel Lied), and they get 2 thousand marks per head.

A Youtube user once told me an anecdote that I think qualifies. He grew up in a part of Berlin that was largely communist pre-1933. He recalled a neighbor who was fervently pro-Nazi. When the war was coming to an end, he would see the Nazi neighbor pushing a wheelbarrow full of coal through the wreckage. Whenever this happened he (and others, presumably) would quite innocently remind that neighbor of a wartime slogan: Räder müssen rollen für den Sieg! -- "wheels must roll for victory!"

Another point. Twice now, I have encountered in books an early-NS-era joke, a very obscure one: "Party Member Number One Doesn't Answer." (One book was Bytwerk's Bending Spines, the other was "Hitler" by Joachim Fest.) The idea, as far as i can tell, is that Hitler wasn't accountable to anyone. The joke is based on the title of a 1932 film called "F.P. 1 antwortet nicht," i.e. "F[loating] P[latform] Doesn't Respond." It was a sci-fi film about a permanent air base in the middle of the Atlantic.

I know it isn't a German joke (or even a joke for that matter but a quote) but it does involve a German and is funny.

At a dinner with Churchill, Ribbentrop had said that, in a future war with Britain, Germany would have the Italians on its side. Churchill, referring to Italy’s poor record in the First World War, responded with one of his devastating verbal flashes: “That’s only fair – we had them last time.”

From Victor Klemperer's LTI - Lingua Tertii Imperii, referring to civilian casualties from Allied bombings:
'What is the definition of cowardice in Berlin? Reporting to front line service.'
