U.S. PROPAGANDA DURING THE SECOND WORLD WAR
  • FDR created the U.S. Office of War Information in June 1942, which soon published a Manual for the Motion Picture Industry: “Civilians must have the war brought home to them. Every individual must be made to see the immediacy of the danger to him…. He must be made to understand that he is an integral part of the war front, and that if he loses the war, he loses everything.”
  • War propaganda focused on those victims of Hitler and Tojo with whom most Americans could identify.
  • The OWI did combat prejudice against against African-Americans and women.
  • The OWI made no effort to differentiate between Nazis and “ordinary Germans,” and depictions of the Japanese were blatantly racist….
