The Witch Hunt is On!

« Are you now, or have you ever been, a member of the communist party? » This is the question thousands of Americans were forced to answer during the years of anti-communist paranoia. From chewing gum vignettes for children to movies made in Hollywood, anti-Communist propaganda would become one of the driving forces of American politics and the obsession of several skillful politicians.
