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.

    Quest’uomo che ha assassinato bambini e donne, che ha bombardato in terra chiese, ospedali e in mare canotti di salvataggio, questo ladro, stupratore e brigante e quest’altro che a guerra finita verrà ancora in veste di commesso viaggiatore a vendervi le sue merci tedesche. Sono tutti e due lo stesso tedesco! Italiani! Non abbiate nulla a che fare coi tedeschi fino a che essi non abbiano espiato i loro delitti. Boicottate tedeschi e merci tedesche!!!
