Propaganda postcards

Recommended Posts

Ralph J. Whitehead

I purchased this pop-up postcard many years back. Once you received it, you would open the card and watch the powerful German soldier pop=up as he holds the hair of his two greatest enemies while the others involved in the war are represented in how they were being perceived by the German public. I particularly appreciate just the helping hand from Austria-Hungary. Quite a few stereotypes and outright racist themes going on here.

Interesting. What is "the baby" attached to the England supposed to represent? 

 

I cant get a good resolution on the phone.

I think it is on its own and not attached   I read the title as Monako which Wiki tells me declared itself neutral in Aug 14, perhaps that's why the baby?  (And Prince Albert of Monaco was with the Kaiser in Kiel when the archduke was assassinated in Sarajevo).

Seems a little harsh on Monaco, what was a little principality expected to do?
