The Henry on History Detectives – round #2


In case you missed last Friday’s special screening of History Detectives at the Henry, don’t fret. It’s on again tonight, Tuesday, June 28th, at 8 PM on PBS

In this episode, Wes Cowan visits Seattle’s Museum of Flight and the Henry Art Gallery to decode the message and strategy behind a U.S. World War II propaganda leaflet. The segment is called “The World War II Leaflet.” Parts of it were filmed at the Henry Art Gallery, which holds some of those wartime leaflets — intended to convince the Japanese to end their war effort — in its permanent collections.

What do the violent images on this pamphlet mean? See for yourself tonight and view some of the objects featured in the Henry ReedCollectionStudyCenter.
