Americans’ Responses to Nazism Through Cinema, Radio, and Media

Stories about World War II and the persecution of Europe’s Jews were portrayed in American movie theaters and living rooms throughout the 1930—40s. Award-winning films such as Mrs. MiniverThe Great Dictator, and Casablanca shaped Americans’ understanding of the Nazi threat, while newsreels and radio programs offered a brief glimpse into world events and the range of opinions on the war effort. Join us to learn how Hollywood and leaders in entertainment and government battled for the hearts and minds of Americans.
