Nazi propaganda was everywhere. At home, on the street and in the classroom. And it is precisely with this propaganda that the German government is trying to control the whole country so that they can build up their army. For example, it tried to impress upon the youth that Jews were evil, that the swastika was a particularly beautiful image and that soldiers were heroes. You hear little about this propaganda, but it formed the foundation for the Second World War. In the exhibition Nazi Propaganda for the Youth 1933-1945, this horrific period is highlighted and we show how the propaganda was felt everywhere – at home, on the street and in the classroom. We also look at the consequences. What were the effects of the government's plans after the war?
Because this subject is still a difficult one to accept today, especially in German culture, the aim is not to provide people with an opinion after seeing the exhibition, but just a gut feeling, leaving room for them to form their own opinion.
‘I did not want to create an
opinion, only a feeling’
