The Power of Nazi Propaganda

When: Mondays, Wednesdays-Sundays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Tuesdays, 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Continues through Sept. 7 2015

Of all the weapons Adolf Hitler wielded during the Second World War, none was more powerful than his propaganda machine. The Missouri History Museum's new exhibit, State of Deception: The Power of Nazi Propaganda, examines how Hitler and his cronies used propaganda to seize and maintain power from Germany's young democracy by appealing to the common people, ultimately popularizing total war and mass murder. The traveling exposition, organized by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, opens this weekend. A number of lectures, panel discussions and screenings will be hosted throughout the year in conjunction with the exhibit.

Daily through Sept. 7. Missouri History Museum (Lindell Boulevard and DeBaliviere Avenue; 314-746-4599 or www.mohistory.org). Free admission..
