SHS Students Visit Nazi Propaganda Exhibit

NARA Trip

On Wednesday, October 22 a select group of Southeast students visited the National Archives in Kansas City to tour the exhibit, “State of Deception: The Power of Nazi Propaganda.” The exhibit, on loan from the National Holocaust Museum, chronicled the evolution of Nazi propaganda from the end of World War I through the rise and fall of Adolph Hitler and the Nazi regime. Starla Parsons and I collaborated on the trip, inviting students from our English and History classes to participate in the unique educational opportunity. I toured the exhibit when I attended a history conference at the World War I Museum back in September. I thought it was a fascinating exhibit, and I wanted students to have the chance to see it. I hope it opened students’ eyes to what propaganda is and how vulnerable we are to it if we aren’t vigilant.
