This book analyzes public opinion, caricatures, propaganda, and international relations from 1939 to 1944. The author focuses on the coexistence of public opinion and Nazi propaganda in the Baltic states during the German occupation of 1941–1944. Interweaving the political concerns and narratives of the Western Allies, the author further examines how public opinion in the occupied Baltic states was shaped by propaganda and led to miscalculations in international relations.
Eero Medijainen is professor and department head of the Institute of History and Archaeology at the University of Tartu.
