Title Användandet av propaganda i skapandet av en föreställd gemenskap

English abstract
The purpose of this paper is to examine how propaganda has been used by two dictatorships, namely Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union under the leadership of Josef Stalin. By examining a number of propaganda posters and paintings, we aim to find similarities as well as differences in how the two nations attempted to create imagined communities amongst their people. While conducting this examination of the propaganda material, we have acquired and used some of the ideas of Benedict Anderson, who has coined a concept that he calls “Imagined Communities”. In conclusion, it is established that the most obvious similarity is that both leaders are heavily included in their propaganda material, both pictured and mentioned in text. The biggest difference that was discovered is how Stalin, in his propaganda, assembled people of different economical, educational and genetic backgrounds while Hitler seemed more interested the gathering of a people with little to no racial differences.
