Posted on June 1, 2015 by

After war was declared in December of 1941, Hollywood worked hard to raise audience morale, and to maintain public support for the war effort. Movies like the Oscar-winning short The House I Live In (1945) aimed to foster a spirit of American diversity and inclusion, while a number of thrillers – and even some comedies – used stories set in Europe to portray, and condemn, the actions of the Nazi party and other fascist regimes.
