Inventions In Walt Hitler's Propaganda During World War II
One prime example of this can be found from the loving, child icon, Walt Disney. Many of his cartoons and animations depicted Germans, Italian, and Japanese men, mostly soldiers, being viewed as brute, inhumane, and bad people. One cartoon titled, “Der Fuehrer’s Face,” illustrated Donald Duck being awoken in a strange, awful place called Nutziland. There a marching band of Germans, Italians, and Japanese march through the streets praising Der Fuehrer’s Face, also known as Hitler. Donald Duck views it as awful and after a nervous breakdown, awakes from his dream and praises that he lives in America.
The last big theme that can be taken from a variety of propaganda is the efforts that the home front should be helping in. One way the government did this was through bestowing power to women and calling them to action. Many posters like the previously mentioned “Rosie the Riveter” instilled such power and called women to rise up. Another example would be the many posters that reminded allies to keep quiet. Posters were put up to remind citizens that, “Loose lips might sink ships.” All of these different themes and more were all used as a backing for US support in World War
