WHY NAZI PROPAGANDA MATTERS TODAY

26/06/2018
12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

Adolf Hitler once described propaganda as “a terrible weapon in the hands of an expert.” For some two decades, the Nazis showed the world how truly terrible this weapon could be in their expert hands. Though Nazi Germany was destroyed in 1945, the techniques and strategies they so skillfully employed are still being used today to shape public opinion and behaviour.

Our speaker, Steven Luckert,  is Senior Program Curator in the Levine Institute for Holocaust Education at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC. He served for 20 years as the Curator of the Museum’s acclaimed permanent exhibition, The Holocaust. In addition, he has curated seven special exhibitions, including State of Deception: The Power of Nazi Propaganda which is currently showing at The Parliamentarium in Brussels where the talk will take place.
