Early Nazi Posters

300.jpg

From the July 1932 Reichstag election. The text translates as:”Over 300 National Socialists died for you — murdered by Marxist subhumanity!!! For work and food vote Adolf Hitler List 2.” The reference is to Nazis killed during the political battles on the streets and in political meetings. The Christian imagery is clear.

  1. Bush seems to be doing just fine with English….

    your comment suggests that it is not the stupidity of the content but rather the language itself; that some cruelty is lost in the translation, which the peace-loving English language cannot begin to reflect.

    Is this based on any etymological insights or just, you know, some ‘feeling’ re the inherent evilness of a language?

    I would really be interested.
    I’m guessing you studied languages and German in particular, as otherwise your comment would really not make any sense at all.

  2. To quote one of Sideshow Bob’s parole board members upon seeing a DIE BART DIE tattoo on his chest….

    No-one who speaks German could be an evil man.
