I urge you to visit the Washington Holocaust Museum’s powerful and disturbing special exhibit “State of Deception: The Power of Nazi Propaganda.”
The exhibit provides graphic and engrossing proof that Hitler, Goebbels, and the Nazis were master propagandists, brainwashing many of the German people before and during World War Two.
During my hour-long walk through the exhibit yesterday, I learned a lot – no small feat because for decades I have had an intense interest in Nazi propaganda, reading Goebbels’s diaries and other books on the subject.
Even more enlightening than the exhibit is its superb companion 194-page hardcover book, which I heartily recommend and which you can order online.
You can learn more about the museum exhibit here.
The museum exhibit concludes with an examination of modern era propaganda meant to inspire hatred and, in the case of Rwanda, for example, mass murder.
