Education For Death

A Disney Anti-Nazi cartoon from 1943. I love the cartoonized Wagner in there. In fact, this whole thing is gold. For kids like me who grew up watching these cartoons not in the context of the war effort, i was kind of confused about the obsession with Hitler & the Nazis, to the point of thinking that Hitler had been an American president! This blog is definitely a product of that phenomenon, Hitler as a pop cultural subject.

  1. This is amazing. I really like how they had the Nazis speaking German; it made them seem even more barbaric and horrible because the viewer has to imagine the translation. Very effective!
