'Truth-bending'

D.F. Silberbauer

Abstract


I think it was about twenty years ago that I first noticed the subtle propaganda campaign being waged by overseas publications against ourselves. This was the type of propaganda .where nothing is said very effectively. The example I offer is ' ... and during WW2 the Commonwealth rallied to Britain's aid, Australians, Canadians etc and so forth' but no mention of South Africa. At first I thought it was ignorance but it became obvious later when similar historic occasions such as Rememberance Day were commemorated on BBC TV and the like that a bit of deliberate forgetting was on the go.

Keywords


BBC TV; German saw-tooth bayonet as a WW1 souvenir; Commonwealth pilots; South Africa
