Images Against Words: Germany and the Soviet Union at War, 1941-1945

Jochen Hellbeck, Rutgers University

The talk compares Nazi German and Soviet propaganda during the Second World War. Special emphasis will be placed on the deeply visual style of Nazi propaganda and largely verbal orientation of the Soviets and their roots in the ideologies of both sides. The lecture will also discuss how soldiers and civilians understood and interpreted war time propaganda and how Nazi images and Soviet texts influenced the bloodiest war of the twentieth century.
