Location: Herbert Hoover Memorial Exhibit Pavilion, adjacent to Hoover Tower
In his recently published history of World War II, Freedom Betrayed: Herbert Hoover’s Secret History of the Second World War and Its Aftermath (Hoover Press, 2011), edited by George H. Nash, Herbert Hoover describes (after the four horsemen of the apocalypse: war, death, famine, and pestilence) “a fifth Horseman bearing propaganda loaded with lies and hate.” As a visual complement to Herbert Hoover's epic historical account, this exhibition features posters and other propaganda from the World War II era that are held in the Hoover Institution Library and Archives. As Hoover stated when dedicating the Hoover Tower on June 20, 1941, “The purpose of this institution is to promote peace. Its records stand as a challenge to those who promote war. They should attract those who search for peace.”
