Transcript of Propaganda in WWI

Propaganda of WWI Melissa, Cassidy, Christina, Flannery Types of Propaganda CPI Bibliography Music News Stories Films Posters Why use propaganda? Propaganda Placement Goals of Propaganda Propoganda- ideas or information spread to promote or injure a cause, nation, etc. Propaganda allowed people to believe that there was a cause behind which the nation could gather. It convinced them that the war had to be fought, and that the "enemy" was a ruthless monster that needed vanquishing. Goals of propaganda included raising money for the war effort, conserving resources, or promoting enlistment. Propoganda posters were often placed at railway stations, theatres, schools, and various other public places were people could gather to see these images. One news story in Britain claimed that monks in Antwerp were forced by the Germans to ring the bells in celebration of the city's occupation. The monks refused and were tied to the clappers of the bells and used as human clappers and were killed doing this.

It blended advertising with a sophisticated knowledge of human psychology to produce government commissioned propaganda on a huge scale. One of the most important divisions of CPI was the Division of News. It distributed more than 6,000 press releases and acted as a primary conduit for war.
