University Press of Kentucky

Christine Beil examines German war exhibitions staged during the First World War to shape civilian perceptions of the conflict. These immensely popular exhibitions―which included mockups of trenches and dioramas presenting stereotypical images of enemy soldiers―used the power of the visual to prove Germany’s military and cultural superiority. Such a successful fusion of propaganda, entertainment, and education, the chapter argues, was later taken to new heights by the National Socialists..
