London’s Senate House inspired George Orwell’s Ministry of Truth, which features in his novel “1984”. During the Second World War, the building was actually home to the British Ministry of Information, the government branch responsible for propaganda.
Today, it is occupied in part by the University of London Library. Every day, hundreds of students (including me) study in the building on which, in Orwell’s imagination, were displayed the three slogans of the party:
WAR IS PEACE
FREEDOM IS SLAVERY
IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH
