To: Angie who teaches high school film:
 
do you want WWII prop films? I suggest showing TRIUMPH OF THE WILL. It is one
of the most powerful pieces of fimmmaking I have ever witnessed--it
terrrifies me when I see it with the understanding of how it might have
looked to Germans in despair after Versailles and depression. The images of
the better-fed, laughing, organized, purposeful teenagers might help your
teens to understand the appeal of what was promised.
 
Or do you want suggestions on propaganda in general.
