Summary"State of Deception: The Power of Nazi Propaganda  reveals how, in the 1920s and 1930s, the Nazi Party used posters, newspapers, rallies, and the new technologies of radio and film to sway millions with its vision for a new Germany. This volume, based on the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum's groundbreaking exhibition, presents an array of rare posters, photographs, and historical artifacts to document the strategies and messages Nazis used to achieve their goals... The Nazis were skilled propagandists, but they were hardly the first or the last. Disseminators of intolerance and hate in this age of instant electronic communication have new tools while, at the same time, members of the public seem less able to cope with the vast amounts of information bombarding them daily. A deeper understanding of the complexities of the past may help us respond more effectively to biased messages and propaganda campaigns in today's era of Holocaust denial, resurgent antisemitism, and genocide." —Book jacket
