AVEC LOUVRIER SOLDAT POUR LE SOCIALISM. The poster is a caricature of a Jewish businessman dressed in a suit made from an American Flag and a top hat with a Union flag running from a German Soldier and a German worker both who are holding weapons with which to strike the man. Loosely translate the words are : Unite with the worker and soldier for socialism.This is a typical propaganda message of the time; the inference being that the Allied nations were involved in a conspiracy to save the Jewish people.

Overall condition is good though the paper is aging. The fold marks are original to the way vintage posters were stored.
Resulting is a tiny hole where the folds meet in the middle, some minor crease and edge wear. A good pressing and a nice frame will restore this nicely. It measures at 24 wide x 32 high /61 cm x 81 cm.To England, Germany and Australia. Please look here on Thursday August 18 when we will be back with more pleasant posters from WWII.
