Textless German Propaganda Poster: Soldier With Apocalyptic Image of Bolshevik, Capitalist, and Jewish Conspiracy.

Unknown Russia n.d. (ca. 1942) 34 x 25" color poster, stored flat. "33-12/W.S.U. 2043" printed on lower right corner.
This is a rare German anti-Jewish, anti-U.S. and anti-Bolshevik propaganda poster from the Nazi occupation of Russia in the early 1940s. This striking poster featuring Biblical and apocalyptic imagery depicts a soldier in uniform in the foreground, throwing a grenade overhead, facing a scene of destruction. In the smoke of the conflagration is a burning Star of David with the numbers 666 at the top (the "Number of the Beast"), a dollar sign ($) in the lower left corner, and a Hammer and Sickle made of human bones in the center. Behind and to the left of it is a 5-pointed black star radiating red lines, and the date 1917 (the year of the Bolshevik victory in Russia) in the center. This wordless image illustrates the Nazi thesis of a "world conspiracy" between the Soviet Union, the U.S. and the Jewish link binding them. It is possible that this poster was created to appeal to Russian Orthodox Christians in its symbolism. This poster was stored folded in half down the middle for many years, preserving its colors and condition.
