What is propaganda?
Propaganda is best thought of as being `political
advertising'. It is designed to get people to think and
believe what you want them to.
For the Nazis, this involved:
· persuading Germans to believe in Nazi ideas and
love their Führer
· convincing those hostile to the regime that the Nazis
were so powerful that opposition would be futile.
Propaganda has been widely used by governments to
distort facts, maintain popularity and boost morale.
Are there any circumstances in which a government
could legitimately use propaganda?

Here's a taster:

Censorship
Alongside their propaganda machine, the Nazis practised
strict censorship. People who disagreed with Nazi ideas
were silenced.
In order to get any work published or performed in Nazi
Germany, you had to be a member of the Reich Chamber
of Culture. Writers, film makers and artists were denied
membership if their views were un-Nazi.
Books which did not fit in with Nazi doctrine were
publicly burnt.
Essentially, the Nazis controlled everything that the
German people read, heard and saw.
