The United States, from its colonial time to its present days, has been one of the most popular countries attracting new comers throughout the world who seek new job opportunities and better economic conditions, freedom of thinking and belief. In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, the United States became a melting pot of different ethnic groups resided. Propaganda as an instrument of state policy has been used effectively in the United States’ domestic and international politics, by the country itself or from the outside, especially during the times of war. This thesis will focus on the aspects of the propaganda that was carried out during World War I mainly towards the German immigrants. War time “anti-German” propaganda in the form of ephemeral sources such as posters, postcards, pamphlets, illustrations and newspapers will constitute the main sources for the research of this thesis.
