Goebbels giving gifts

Post by Demon of Night » 08 Dec 2004 22:35

It's, obviously, originally from Corbis, but I couldn't find it on there anymore. Not only do I find this amusing since Goebbels is giving out gifts, but because if you notice in the upper left hand corner it looks as if some man is accusing the other of something. :lol: I just find that amusing

Nibelung, the picture you have posted is the well known "Madonna von Stalingrad", painted 1942 by Oberarzt Dr. med. lic. theol. Kurt Reuber.

Nowadays the picture can be seen in Berlin in the Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gedächtniskirche.

‘Kurt Reuber died on 20 January 1944, in Yelabuga camp only a few weeks after he had drawn another Madonna for Christmas with the same words: ‘Light, Life, Love’.’

if some man is accusing the other of something. I just find that amusing

Maybe he's accusing him of being a Nazi- and the Party official is having a tough time formulating a comeback.
