Denazification is a government initiative implemented in post-war Germany. The program was operative until 1951, yet, arguably, its consequential proportion of political propaganda against Nazism has turned into a considerable legacy. This research focuses on proving that the propaganda is still imperative in contemporary popular culture products which involve Nazi and/or neo-Nazi portrayals. To reach that conclusion, this research analyses a Netflix original series titled Dogs of Berlin. The series has multitude of representation layers worthy of deeper analysis, to sort out whether it is a propagation anyhow. The objects – which consists of visual and abstract representation – are examined using multiple frameworks. With textual and contextual approach, this research concludes that the film’s way of representing neo-Nazi posited the product to be an arrangement of propaganda, as a reaction toward right-wing resurgence in mainstream politics.
