"Some were Neighbours: Choice, Human Behaviour, and the Holocaust"
This set of posters is based on the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum's exhibition "Some were Neighbours". The exhibition addresses one of the central questions of the Holocaust: how did it happen? The exhibition examines the role of ordinary people in the Holocaust, and the variety of motives that influenced individual choices. These influences often reflect fear, indifference, antisemitism, career concerns, community standing, peer pressure, or chances for material gain. The exhibition considers individuals who did not give in to the opportunities and temptations to betray their fellow human beings, reminding us that there is an alternative to complicity in evil acts - even in extraordinary times. The exhibition was created and curated by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. The posters are available in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Kiswahili, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish in A1, 2x3, and roll-up format. Each set includes 23 different posters.

“State of Deception: The Power of Nazi Propaganda”
The Holocaust and the United Nations Outreach Programme has partnered with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum to produce a set of 16 posters based on the Museum's exhibition "State of Deception: The Power of Nazi Propaganda" for display by the global network of United Nations information centres. The exhibition examines how the Nazis used propaganda to win broad voter support in Germany’s young democracy after the First World War, implement radical programmes under the party’s dictatorship in the 1930s, and justify war and mass murder. The exhibition emphasises why the issue of propaganda matters and challenges to question, analyse, and seek the truth. The posters and a lesson plan are available in all 6 United Nations official languages (Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian, Spanish) as well as Dutch, Kiswahili and Ukrainian.
