Just as the Galactic Empire in Star Wars uses propaganda to gain support for destroying galaxies, NAZI Germany used propaganda to create an atmosphere tolerant of violence against Jews. NAZI propaganda also encouraged passivity and acceptance of laws against Jews, as these appeared to depict the Nazi government as stepping in and “restoring order.” Films, newspapers, schooling, and radio were ways the NAZI government administered their propaganda to the German public. German people believed in the NAZI propaganda for a multitude of reasons. Two major reasons were the Great Depression - no money to eat and live, and Germany defeat in WWI - caused low morale and confidence of being a German citizen. Jews were used as a scapegoat to blame for the loss of WWI and the destruction of the German economy.
