Weimar Era Propaganda Posters
Ever seen some of the Weimar era political propaganda posters? They are interesting. Really gets to the heart of the communist-Nazi rivalry. Good stuff for reaching your man on the street. These groups vied for influence and power in the period of the German revolution at the end of the Great War, and continued on for years until the Nazis received better funding, broader support and the Stalinists and their "Socialism in One Country" idea won out in Russia. Far more violent imagery here than anything we see today, but the street battles were actual street fights then, not faux fights between camps fighting over Imperial treasury spoils.
Commies Killing the Nazi Snake
A menacing image to promote the speaker
Nazis will choke the Commie snake
Interesting that opponents both used the snake imagery for one another.
