Fighting on the Home Front: Propaganda Posters of WWII

Summer 2020

World War II Propaganda Poster. Detroit Historical Society collection.

This traveling exhibit from the Detroit Historical Society features about two dozen posters produced during the war that promoted patriotism, the purchasing of war bonds, growing and canning food, and taking jobs to aid in wartime production. In an era before television, posters were an efficient way to grab someone’s attention. Americans were likely to encounter war-related posters throughout their daily activities–on the commute to work, at work, at the grocery store, or at the post office.

Fighting on the Home Front: Propaganda Posters of WWII was produced by the Detroit Historical Society.
