The German changes clothes but he is always the same German! Remember!

Description

This poster shows a recurring theme of Italian anti-German propaganda, seen in many graphics and text published in Italy during the war, where Germans are represented as barbaric murderers, rapists and thieves. Here the message takes a further step: Italians are invited, now and in the future, never to forget the German atrocities and to boycott their goods even in times of peace.

Transcript

This man murdered children and women, bombed churches and hospitals on earth, and rafts at sea, he is a thief, rapist and robber. Once the war is over he will appear again as a travelling salesman to sell German goods. They're both the same Germans! Italians! Do not share anything with the Germans until they have expiated their crimes. Boycott Germans and German goods!
