Exploration of the ways in which the Nazis used art and media to portray their country as the champion of 'Kultur' and civilization. Contribution to Holocaust studies, by revealing how multiple domains of cultural activity served to dehumanize Jews and other groups. Examples of this process are: defining music and art as degenerate; the promotion of race hatred through film and public assemblies; views of the racially ideal garden and landscape; race as portrayed in popular literature; the reception of art and culture abroad; the treatment of exiled artists.
