Interesting topic,

the german term was "Durchhalteparole" ("perseverance slogan...")

Anyone who painted something against the Nazis on a wall was shot by court order, there are many examples...

Citizens walking through the streets of Bonn shortly after the 1st US-Army captured the city in March 1945. The slogan on the wall: Fight and Victory, despite terror. Note: the slogan is not there anymore.

Hi Cor,

the german term "Wandzeitung" is somewhat related to all this, the former slogans were very similar to the so-called "Durchhalteparolen" on the walls,
all of this went hand in hand, pushed and controlled by the still active NSDAP, even in 1945.

Wandzeitung https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wandzeitung

There are large wall inscriptions, as well as the smallest stickers with the slogans of the time.
These stickers are extremely rare, you won't find them anymore.

The anti-Nazi material printed at that time is extremely rare, sometimes you find something like this as a bookmark in a book from that time, but a find today is very unlikely...

Everything was destroyed, before the 1945 downfall, and especially after 1945, nobody wanted anything to do with all that...

As I could see from the sign, the photo was taken in the Bonn am Rhein region...

I've corrected and sharpened the second photo a bit, so the small details are a bit more recognizable:

"American GI on the ruins of war, well worth seeing!"
(50 Cents for his thoughts at that time!)
