Virtual Program: German Propaganda in Children's Books (E-News)

7:00PM - 8:00PM  

Contact Shelby Gadol

Please note: While this topic focuses on children's books, this program is recommended for high school students and adults. The books discussed contain some images that are not appropriate for children.

The Nazi propaganda machine did not stop at the indoctrination of adults. Join Dr. Sara Abosch-Jacobson, Chief Education Officer, and Felicia Williamson, Director of Library & Archives, for an inside look at two children’s books published in Nazi Germany in 1936 to teach children about the Aryan ideal and its Jewish counterpart. These books and their illustrations were rooted in a unique brand of Nazi antisemitism and a key part of the Nazis’ propaganda plan.

The conversation will take place on the online platform Zoom. A link to join will be sent to registered guests via email the day of the program.
