State of Deception Poster Set

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum partnered with The Holocaust and the United Nations Outreach Programme to produce a set of 16 posters based on the Museum's exhibition State of Deception: The Power of Nazi Propaganda.

The exhibition examines how the Nazis used propaganda to win broad voter support in Germany’s young democracy after World War I, implement radical programs under the party’s dictatorship in the 1930s, and justify war and mass murder. This poster series, and an accompanying lesson plan, emphasizes why the issue of propaganda matters and challenges citizens to actively question, analyze, and seek the truth.
