As part of the work we are doing on the novel we are looking at propaganda. Go here to read a speech from Joseph Goebbels who was the Reich Minister of Propaganda in Nazi Germany from 1933 to 1945. Goebbels gave an annual speech on New Year’s Eve in which he reviewed the old year and sometimes made predictions for the new one. This is the first of the series. He looks back on the first year of National Socialism and declares the revolution over. Think about:
- How does he represent the Nazi Party?
- How does he represent his enemies?
- What techniques of persuasion does he use?
