State of Deception:
The Power of Nazi Propaganda
“Propaganda is a truly terrible weapon in the hands of an expert,” wrote Adolf Hitler in 1924. Organized by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, State of Deception examines the Nazis’ keen understanding of mass communications and how they manipulated it in their quest to acquire power.
