Erinnerung an Deutschlands Kriegsverbrecher: Adolf Hitler, Hermann Göring, Dr. Josef Goebbels, 1939 (In memory of Germany's war criminals) [ANTI-NAZI DOCUMENT]

NP: NP, ND (ca 1939). Original artwork. Original red silk streamer with hanger string, beige fringes and black Swastika set to a beige circular cloth sown onto the red silk, adorned with silver lettering. Dim.: 13 3/4 x 6 3/4". There is no indication as to who, where or when the streamer was produced. It may have been German exiles after the outbreak of WWII, possibly in France, Holland or Sweden, or, if it was produced in the immediate postwar period, surviving anti-Nazi groups, possibly leftists in Germany would be a conceivable interpretation as well. As to the symbolism of the design, the German saying "Reden ist Silber, Schweigen ist Gold" (talking is silver, silence is gold) comes to mind considering the match of the German national colors of the streamer on one hand and the silver lettering on the other. Highly unusual and unique piece in very good condition. vg. Item #37256
