while helping my son with his history homework about Nazi Germany he showed me a couple of propaganda posters that got me thinking.
When I was a kid I picked up loads of posters from the IWM and have seen countless of them in books and museums.
Does anyone else have a poster they remember from WW2? there are thousands from around the world and its interesting to see how each country depicts its enemies.

I have a couple of 'em from a visit to a museum in Singers, packed away unfortunately - they might be a bit tough on modern sensitive eyes - what with the japs portrayed as cruel, buck toothed, bespectacled subhumans and such.
Will shuffle out to the shed when it cools off a bit out there - see if i can dig them out for you & give them a scan.

Oh the ironry of that poster mentioning the KKK when they were gassing/killing 1/2 of europe as they didn't meet the racial profiles or had them working as slave labour supporting the war effort. I'd be interesting to find out the background to this poster and why considering similar parallels with slavery etc they felt supperior
It was for the Dutch 'market'. The colour version 'Kultur-Terror' for Norway. Seems the artist was Norwegian. Propaganda only goes in for one-way irony.

The germans used to drop these on the allied positions, suggesting that their wives etc were out shagging while they were away fighting...



I'll bet quite a few were tucked away for a quiet moment on stag...

Appears this was on the back of German playing cards. British soldiers shown as apes (Germans call us Inselaffen, you see). (looks a little WW1 to my eyes, though)

BOER WAR?

British Military trains used to carry POW's in the front carrage, (in front of the loco), to prevent attacks and blowing up tracks.

From the book ARMOURED TRAINS by STEVEN J ZALOGA it would appear the British and Belgians operated military armoured trains around Antwerp in September 1914.

A little off thread but does anyone remember that IRA poster with the pic of a British Soldier, one side of him in uniform and the other in civvys. The slogan was IIRC 'This Brit Could be Standing Beside You'
