Throughout history, government and culture have proven to be inextricably linked . During the early twentieth century, the Nazi Party's use of artistic propaganda through multiple forms of media directly led to its ascension and dominance of German culture. The Nazis' success can be directly attributed to its careful planning, ruthless implementation, and clear results.
The Nazi's use of propaganda was meticulously planned by party leaders. In Mein Kampf, Adolf Hitler very clearly outlined his intended use of propaganda to manipulate public opinion. He stated, “...by clever and persevering use of propaganda even heaven can be represented as hell to the people, and conversely the most wretched of life as paradise...” (276).
