The Nazis utilized propaganda as a political tool from their inception. Joseph Goebbels, Reich Propaganda Minster, developed bright, simply-interpreted imagery to impact the opinions of the German electorate prior to 1933, and then to sensitize them to the Nazi racial message after 1933. This exercise helps students to evaluate that propaganda for message and effectiveness.
