State of Deception: The Power of Nazi Propaganda
From a poster for the film S.A. Mann Brand, 1933. Kunstbibliothek Berlin/BPK, Berlin/Art Resource, New York
The Nazis used propaganda to win broad voter support, implement radical programs, and justify war and mass murder. This exhibition highlights the power of propaganda and challenges us to actively question, analyze, and seek the truth.
This exhibition was underwritten in part by grants from Katharine M. and Leo S. Ullman and The Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation, with additional support from the Lester Robbins and Sheila Johnson Robbins Traveling and Special Exhibitions Fund established in 1990, and Dr. and Mrs. Sol Center.
In 1996, David Pilgrim established the Jim Crow Museum at Ferris State University in Michigan. In this episode of Voices on Antisemitism, he explains how songs, commercials, and everyday objects can function as propaganda.
