Anti Hitler propaganda...

Post by Linkagain » 13 Apr 2021 19:54

I ve seen two different versians of this...a standard English "Wanted Poster"'..featuring A. Hitler....! his own pictures were used in it along with satiric comedic description of his person ; and his habits...his fingerprints were made by printing an ordinary persons fingerprints in the spaces..and then drawing a Swastika over each fingerprint....
The OSS Made counterfeit Hitler postage stamp....Hitler face made into a death head..and the caption reads "Fallen Reich" instead of Third Reich.... :lol: :lol: :lol:

Recommended paperback book:

Eckhard Siepmann: "Montage: John Heartfield"

Excellent large format paperback book from 1977, easy to find on german flea markets, and in the modern antiquarian book shops online...

John Heartfield (Helmut Herzfeld) https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Heartfield


"heartfield hitler" google search: https://www.google.com/search?q=heartfi ... =759&dpr=1

Heartfield was a genius, unfortunately I don't own a single one of his old posters, the prices are now at astronomical heights...
You can hardly find his posters anymore, maybe in the well-known auction houses, unfortunately there are a lot of reproductions...

Glad to be of help :milwink: :wink: :milsmile:

Sadly the Heartfield montage of A.H... with coins inside of him..the mistaken impression that becuase A.H. was supported by the Rich and Powerful that he was nothing but their puppet....in A H took their money all right but to make himself..the one and only most powerful fuhrer/Emperor in Germany and nearly all of Europe as well....:sigh:

What are you fantasizing about here anyway, for the value of some of these posters you can pay a whole house here in Germany today, and not too scarcely so.

Keep dreaming your dream, the original works are immorally expensive and valuable, more than enough to pay for a luxury *** whatever...

Whoever needs such a thing, the original sheets are bloody expensive these days, you definitely won't be able to afford them, no chance...

Forget it! 8-)

As a german poster collector, I have been searching for decades for one the originals, you will not find them, never!
