Paul Joseph Goebbels, Hitler's Minister of Propaganda and Public Enlightenment, refined the use of what he called the Big Lie to a fine, art. Democracy was portrayed as evil, dictatorship as good. Books which did not conform with Nazi ideology were burned; radio broadcasts were made with the intention of cowing the German populace and frightening the peoples of the world. Mass rallies were staged in Berlin, Nuremberg and elsewhere to whip up enthusiasm for the military expansion of Germany and hysteria for the Third Reich and its Führer. Magazines and newspapers played their role in a more subtle way, emphasizing Nazi triumphs and minimizing or obliterating criticism of the regime and its failures. Colorful posters were put up throughout Germany. Later the Nazis enlisted the support of other Europeans in the pan-German cause. All of these propaganda techniques were master-minded by Goebbels, whose genius in orchestrating propaganda in the mass media was acknowledged even by his enemies. In films, magazines , posters, rallies and speeches by Hitler and his followers, Goebbels developed a propaganda mechanism that has been copied. by dozens of dictators since but never equaled in its cynicism and, fury. Hitler's. Propaganda Machine is portrayed vividly and dramatically through the use of hundreds of photographs and posters as well as original magazines and newspapers of the Nazi era. It is a unique collection which brilliantly illustrates the fascination and horror of the Nazi years.
