"The enemy sees your light! Blackout!"
(1943) German propaganda poster

It's interesting to note the superior artistic quality of German propaganda that was not overtly Nazi, when compared with Nazi propaganda.

"Help Raise The Victory Flag."
Soviet World War Two Military Propaganda Poster.

Saturday, November 21, 2009


Nazi propaganda (March 1933) poster. The text: "In the deepest need Hindenburg chose Adolf Hitler for Reich Chancellor. You too should vote for List 1."

As I've written before, the Nazi's propaganda posters are in general artistically terrible.  This example is no exception.  Hindenburg and Hitler look like cardboard cutouts.  Unlike other totalitarians and others, which never shied away from using artistic talent, apparently failed artists did not care to be reminded of their lack thereof.
