This online collection, from the California State University Oviatt Library, provides a look into German propaganda that crossed the Atlantic and took root in Southern California between 1933 and 1945. A straightforward guide to the contents of the website is located on the right hand side of each page of the website. The collection contains almost 200 pieces of propaganda, such as books, pamphlets, flyers, newspapers, letters, and photographs. In addition to the page on "Historical Context", reading the "Introduction" page will familiarize visitors with this aspect of Hitler's effort to dominate the world by "undermining the faith of the American people in their own government, a new group will take over; this will be the German-American group, and we will help them to assume power." Some of the categories shown here include, "Techniques of Propaganda: Disinformation", "Fascists Movements in Southern California", "Resisting the Enemy Within: Community Work", and "Hollywood Under Attack". For each category, an explanation is provided, as well as accompanying images of propaganda. Visitors can click on the image to see a larger version of it, along with its cataloging information.
