Hitler through American eyes : Nazi racism as perceived by the United States media, 1933-1941 / by William Oscar Donald.
This thesis examines how certain segments of the American print media covered racial policies and actions of the German Nazi party between the time of the appointment of Hitler as Chancellor in 1933 and the American entry into World War Two in 1941. This thesis will survey American newspapers and magazines selected to illustrate ideological and geographical variations. Additionally, the thesis will incorporate findings from relevant secondary sources. Due to isolationism, foreign events, and a confusion regarding anti-Semitism, the American media, and thus the American public, failed to understand the extent of Nazi racism. While the coverage was extensive, the press never fully realized all the ramifications of Nazi racial policy.
