'State of Deception: The Power of Nazi Propaganda' State of Deception: The Power of Nazi Propaganda

A traveling exhibition from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum

January 27, 2017 – June 18, 2017


This powerful exhibition explores how the Nazi propaganda machine used biased information to sway public opinion during World War II. It examines the definition of propaganda, how it operates, why it works, and how important it is to protect ourselves from its dangers. The exhibit asks visitors to actively question and engage with the messages they see, and to learn from this extreme example that democracies, while appearing strong, are fragile without the responsibility and action of their people. Using posters, photos, newsreels, and eight media pieces, this exhibition aims to help society understand propaganda in order to protect against divisive messages and violent agendas.

For more information, please visit the website for the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

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. Local exhibition support provided by Goldring Family Foundation & The Woldenberg Foundation.

Presenting support provided by an anonymous donor.
