Gemma Birnbaum presents German Propaganda Aimed at Children
Board games, songs, and picture books—these childhood items that we all recognize from our own lives were used during Hitler’s reign to lure even the youngest of Germans into fascism. Assistant Director of Education for Curriculum Gemma Birnbaum discusses propaganda specifically aimed at the youth of Nazi Germany. Feel free to bring your lunch or just come to enjoy the lecture.
Lunchbox Lectures are free and open to the public on every first and third Wednesday of the month. For more information call 504-528-1944 x 463.
