Exhibition Opening: State Of Deception says
In conjunction with commemorations in Washington, New York, and Paris, New Orleans will mark International Holocaust Remembrance Day with the opening of a powerful exhibition. State of Deception: The Power of Nazi Propaganda explores how the Nazi propaganda machine used biased information to sway public opinion during World War II. It examines the definition of propaganda, how it operates, why it works, and the importance of protecting ourselves from its dangers. The exhibition asks visitors to actively question and engage with the messages they see, and to learn from this extreme example that democracy, even while appearing strong, is fragile without the responsibility and action of the people. Holocaust survivor Margit Meissner and Sarah Campbell, a Museum educator, will share their experiences and expertise at the opening.

Join the conversation on social media using #HolocaustRemembrance.

State of Deception will be on display in the National World War II Museum’s Joe W. and Dorothy D. Brown Foundation Special Exhibit Gallery through June 18, 2017.

A reception precedes the remarks. The special exhibition will be open for viewing throughout the evening.

Margit Meissner, Holocaust survivor
Sarah Campbell, program coordinator, Law, Justice, and Society Initiatives, United States Holocaust Memorial Museum
