Hitler and the Nazi regime were able to almost annihilate the entire Jewish population by their use of propaganda, they used this propaganda to become very powerful. Imagine going to sleep one night and then waking up the next morning to realize that your neighboring country has been abandoned overnight. You would be dumbfounded; you would be asking yourself how could this be possible, and the answer would be propaganda. Now propaganda did not only make it seem like all of this was okay but it also allowed Hitler and the Nazi regime to gain even more power.

One of the most cruel and unusual punishments that were forced upon some Jews was medical experiments preformed on Jews against their own will. How could anyone think this was ok? Propaganda.
