Abstract

This study aims to show that the belligerents; Belgium, Czechoslovakia, Norway, Poland, The Netherlands, Germany, and The British Empire, carried on propaganda in the United States from 1939 - 1945, through the media of pamphlets released through their respective Bureaus of Information which would appeal to the sympathy and sense of justice of the American people.

The study is confined to Belgium, Czechoslovakia, Norway, Poland, The Netherlands, Germany, and The British Empire because pamphlets from these countries only, were at the disposal of the writer. Therefore this study does not depict a cross-section of the kind of propaganda from all countries involved in World War II or were affected thereby.

This study does not aim to solve a problem, nor does it aim to show the affects of this propaganda on the American public.

In reading the pamphlets the writer discovered that the propaganda from each country was of a specific nature or character. In the study, the writer picked out certain representative incidents for relation here, which would serve as an example of the kind of propaganda published by each country. The material for the study was collected as a result of being on the mailing list of the various Bureaus.
