Transcript of Propaganda

By: Austin A.,Madi Grace,Anna P.,Haley S.,Zaria B

Rallying the Nation!
A motive of propaganda is making the country want to join together. Many motives were used to try to get their country to unite for the fight.
Writing The News
In WWII, the government and people who were in charge of the war would control mass media. They would control the radio stations, tv networks, and PBS. Germany issued an amateur radio for everyone. It had three dials: volume, station, and tuning.
Many countries would make propaganda to try and convince people to believe anything the government says. The government

George Orwell’s 1984 very closely relates to how much control the government is able to have. Propaganda comes to play in a big part in both WWII and 1984. Every country that was involved in the war had some sort of way to convince their citizens that they are able to win the war or help fight with another country. Many ways that these countries were able to convince their citizens was by mass media.

Mass media- any of the means of communication, as television or newspapers, that reach very large numbers of people.

The Hitler Youth was a logical extension of Hitler's belief that the future of Nazi Germany was its children. The Hitler Youth was seen as being as important to a child as school was. In the early years of the Nazi government, Hitler had made it clear as to what he expected German children to be like:

"The weak must be chiselled away. I want young men and women who can suffer pain. A young German must be as swift as a greyhound, as tough as leather, and as hard as Krupp's steel."
Deceiving the Public
Propaganda served as an important tool to win over the majority of the German public who did not support Hi
What is Propaganda?
Biased information designed to shape public opinion and behavior for negative and positive use, in forms of media ad versions, public relation, communications, and mass psychology.
Positive Propaganda
Negative Propaganda
Positive Propaganda:
"We Can Do It!" is an American wartime propaganda poster as an inspirational image to boost worker morale.
The Barack Obama "Hope" poster is an image of Barack Obama which was widely described as iconic and came to represent the 2008 Obama presidential campaign
"Their preachers have shirked their responsibility to tell people the truth about sin, and instead lie to them about what the Lord their God doth require of them. If these lying, false prophets told people the truth about what God says regarding those who suffer sin upon their neighbor (Lev. 19:17–18), there wouldn't be any butts in the seats when the plate got passed. These preachers are not preachers of righteousness, they are teachers having itching ears (2Tim 4:3), and they absolutely count on the abysmal bible illiteracy of their parishioners ... "Priests rape boys" is indeed an air-tight, three word case against all of the mainline "christian" churches – their preachers and members, without exception. They are all going to Hell!"
Negative Propaganda
Loose lips sink ships is an American English idiom meaning "beware of unguarded talk"
Indoctrinating Youth
"The Hitler Youth Movement succeded in mesmerizing an entire generation of idealistic German boys with the NAZI ideology of racial and national superiority. These boys were the ones who carried out without question the barbarities of aggresive war and the Holocaust."
American Propaganda
The United States used the
idea of joining together for
defense to gather the country.
Hitler Youth
Hitler created a youth ministry to brainwash the children into wanting to fight and to seeing Hitler as a hero. Through Hitler Youth, Hitler attempted to remove awareness of class or social status.
The Aryan Family
Hitler created what he called the "perfect race." His excuse for war was to protect the Aryan people from threat.
Connections to
1984 related to World
War II in the way which
Big Brother was doing
"what was best" in
protecting the people
just like Hitler did to keep the Aryan race "safe." Also, propaganda used in both cultures included what was both to show defense of what was considered beautiful and rallied their
counties to war in self-defense.
Standard Issue German Radio-WWII
Radio Propaganda
TV Propaganda
The Propaganda of Deception
Wartime Propagandists all seek to justify the use of military violence by portraying it as morally defensible and necessary. Nazi propagandists disguised military aggression aimed at territorial conquest as righteous and necessary self-defense.
Translation: "MY LIFE"
They cast Germany as a victim or potential victim of foreign aggressors, a peace-loving nation forced to protect its populace or defend European civilization against Communism. This was propaganda of deception, designed to fool or misdirect the populations in Germany.
Nazi Propaganda About the Ghettos
A theme that appears a lot was that Jews spread diseases. To stop non-jews from attempting to enter the ghettos and from seeing the condition of daily life there for themselves.
Translation :Jews typhus lice
Deception in 1984
The government deceives the people by posing that they are watching out for them when it is really just trying to maintain its own existence. Winston (the main character) and everyone else abides by all these totalitarian rules, or else they are charged with various 'thoughtcrimes'. Therefore one cannot even be true to themselves, and has to deny their own thoughts and feelings. There is a 'two-way' tv in each apt that apparently monitors everyone while continuously broadcast the political party propaganda. Winston has a small area in his apt where he believes he is out of view of the monitor therefore deceiving the party, by gaining a small amount of freedom.
Making a leader
Nazi propagandists cast as Hitler as a military leader, a father figure, and a messianic leader brought to redeem Germany.
1984 to Making a leader connections
In 1984, I found one connection: Winston rewrites history which makes him a leader to the people.
In making a leader, Hitler is honored as an leader for all he did for the Germany people.
World War I propaganda
Hitler was a front line soldier from 1914 to 1918
Party Propaganda
League of German Maidens
The Hitler Youth and the League of German Girls were the primary tools that the Nazis used to shape the beliefs, thinking and actions of German youth. The League of German Girls emphasized collective athletics, such as rhythmic gymnastics, which German health authorities deemed less strenuous to the female body and better geared to preparing them for motherhood.
Education in the Nazi State
Education in the Third Reich served to indoctrinate students with the National Socialist world view. Nazi scholars and educators glorified Nordic and other “Aryan” races, while denigrating Jews and other so-called inferior peoples as parasitic “bastard races” incapable of creating culture or civilization. Most educators, however, remained in their posts and joined the National Socialist Teachers League. 97% of all public school teachers, some 300,000 persons, had joined the League by 1936.
Hitler Youth
Founded in 1926, the original purpose of the Hitler Youth was to train boys to enter the SA (Storm Troopers), a Nazi Party paramilitary formation. In 1936, membership in Nazi youth groups became mandatory for all boys and girls between the ages of ten and seventeen. After-school meetings and weekend camping trips sponsored by the Hitler Youth and the League of German Girls trained children to become faithful to the Nazi Party and the future leaders of the National Socialist state.

Military Service
Upon reaching age eighteen, boys were required to enlist immediately in the armed forces or into the Reich Labor Service, for which their activities in the Hitler Youth had prepared them. In the autumn of 1944, as Allied armies crossed the borders into Germany, the Nazi regime conscripted German youths under sixteen to defend the Reich, along side seniors over the age of 60, in the units of the “Volkssturm” (People's Assault).
Indoctrinating of Youth in 1984
Children are indoctrinated into the part from the time before they're even aware of it.
"Nearly all children nowadays were horrible. What was worst of all was that by means of such organizations as the Spies they were systematically turned into ungovernable little savages, and yet this produced in them no tendency whatever to rebel against the discipline of the Party. On the contrary, they adored the Party and everything connected with it. The songs, the processions, the banners, the hiking, the drilling with dummy rifles, the yelling of slogans, the worship of Big Brother -- it was all a sort of glorious game to them. All their ferocity was turned outwards, against the enemies of the State, against foreigners, traitors, saboteurs, thought-criminals. It was almost normal for people over thirty to be frightened of their own children. And with good reason, for hardly a week passed in which The Times did not carry a paragraph describing how some eavesdropping little sneak -- 'child hero' was the phrase generally used -- had overheard some compromising remark and denounced its parents to the Thought Police."
