The Georgia Council on the Social Studies (GCSS) hosts an annual conference. The 2016 conference will be held at the Classic Center in Athens on October 13-14, 2016. A large number of teachers from across Georgia participate in over 100 concurrent sessions and visit the exhibit hall filled with social studies resources.
The Georgia Commission on the Holocaust will be presenting a session titled Shaping Thought, Justifying War, Committing Mass Murder: Deconstructing Nazi Propaganda. This presentation examines how the Nazis used propaganda to win broad voter support in Germany’s young democracy after World War I, implement radical programs under the party’s dictatorship in the 1930s, and justify war and mass murder. This most extreme case study emphasizes why the issue of propaganda matters and challenges citizens to actively question, analyze, and seek the truth.
It is free admission to the session but attendees must be registered for the conference.
