Big lie

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The big lie (German: große Lüge) is a lie of the truth, used as a propaganda technique.[1][2] The German expression was created by Adolf Hitler, when he wrote his 1925 book Mein Kampf, to describe the use of a lie so big that no one would believe it.
