Taking Action Together: “Power of Propaganda” with Echoes & Reflections
Wednesday, February 21 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Location: ZOOM Online
Speaker: Jennifer Goss, Echoes & Reflections
“Power of Propaganda”
A crucial component of delivering Nazi racial ideology to the masses was the use of propaganda. In this session, we will examine propaganda deployed by the Nazis to discriminate against Jews and other minorities. Participants will also learn how propagandists utilize the media to spread their message and how to be aware of the role of propaganda in our world today.
