Every Step Counts: Hadassah's Walking Program
State of Deception
August 18, 2015 - August 18, 2015United States Holocaust Memorial Museum
Organized by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum "Propaganda," Adolf Hitler wrote in 1924, is a truly terrible weapon in the hands of an expert.” During the subsequent two decades, Nazi leaders showed the world bold, new ways to use it. State of Deception: The Power of Nazi Propaganda is a traveling exhibition produced by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. It examines how the Nazis used propaganda to win broad voter support in Germany’s young democracy after World War I, implement radical programs under the party’s dictatorship in the 1930s, and justify war and mass murder.
