Doc Zone Love, Hate and Propaganda: Changing the Story (Part 6 of 6)

By 1945, propaganda machines that had geared populations for war now have to prepare them for peace. With the end of the war and the beginning of the Cold War, enemies would become partners, and allies now foes. The Allies chase the Nazis out of France and close in from all sides on Berlin. The "free French" retake their beloved city of Paris under the leadership of Charles De Gaulle. Nazi collaborators in France are outed and publicly humiliated. Meanwhile American sleuths go searching for "evidence" to convict Germans — former propagandists are hoisted on the very images they created. The Allies will now begin a process of "de-Nazification," trying to persuade Germans that what they have believed for years under Hitler is all lies. Meanwhile as much of the West celebrates the "end of war," it is far from over in the Pacific. World War Two will finally end with the dropping of the bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and the admission by Emperor Hirohito that Japan was surrendering for the first time in 2,600 years
