Berlin: J. Bork; Druck Fredebeul & Koenen, 1932. Loose leaf. Folio (18 1/2 x 12 1/2"). Broadside. Original color-illustrated tan paper with black and red lettering, protected by modern mylar.
Well rendered Anti-Nazi lithographic broadside preceding the election for the Prussian State Parliament on April 24th, 1932. Depicting a raging Hitler throwing sand into the eyes of listeners at top, with a craftsmen kicking Hitler (out) at the bottom, the text warns against Hitler's intention to create disorder, civil war and the demolition of the system and its economy. It points out the foolishness of Nazi speakers and writing maniacs, not even taken seriously by those Nazis who still show remnants of common sense. Inflation and unemployment are being promised as the result of Hitler's policies, and therefore a complete desolation of the economic basis of the middle class, especially the independent craftsman. Hitler is portrayed as a double-faced despot going around praising nationalism while at the same time betraying Southern Tyrol. The text ends with the question: "Should he and the likes of him govern Prussia? No! Give him the right answer on April 24!! The caricature of "Hitler getting the boot" covering the lower quarter of the broadside. "Herausgeber (editor): J. Bork, Berlin-Schöneberg," and "Druck (Printer): Fredebeul & Koenen, Essen," printed to bottom. Text in German, Gothic script, printed in red and black. A well rendered time document in good condition with minor wear along edges, some small punctuations not affecting images, and age-toned with horizontal folding crease. vg+. Item #44676
