Thanks Tony, very nice indeed.
Wow! Those are some amazing SS posters. Propaganda posters from that time were so well done (on both sides). Thanks for sharing!
Lots of great posters in this thread. I was wondering how you guys display them? Do you have any special frames, like the archival type? I have a few American posters but I don't want to put them on display and have them fade and deteriorate.
For me, I linen back my pieces. While the term is 'linen' actually the backing is canvas and it's affixed with wheat paste. I also store my posters in a flat file but a few of them are framed. Framing them gets very expensive as frame shops tend to charge hundreds to do the work.
Here are more I recently hauled out. The photos have been cropped in photoshop to fit uniform in a photo file that I keep, thus the water mark, too. However, these all are original and backed on linen and each one is about 87cm x 101cm. That's a standard size for most of these German pieces and one good way to determine an original.
1) "1933-1943" was designed by the artist 'Mjölnir' (Hans Schweitzer).
2) "Sieg um jeden Preis" (Victory at any Price) dates 1942 but I've seen a German wedsite list it as '43.
3) "ein Volk ein Reich ein Führer" is a 'famous' piece said to have been issued in Austria. I have not found printing indication to support that fact. The printing information on my poster shows it as Offsetdruck Carl Werner, Reichenbach. (Offset press, Carl Werner [company] Reichenbach [city])
4) "Hitler Liberator" is a German issued poster for the Russian/Ukraine occupation. Also a Carl Werner issue.
Here is one from my collection. (In Ukrainian) "One year ago the struggle for your liberation began!
Your work is your support!"
In Russian language: "Germany Is The Front Line Fighter For A New Europe!"
Another from my batch and this one is in Ukrainian language: "For The Will Of The People!"
I believe another member also has this poster. If that member happens to see this post, please re-post yours here, too!
Here's one I have! Nur Hitler poster.
Us and them - and after all we’re only ordinary men. Me, and you - God only knows it’s not what we would choose to do. Forward he cried from the rear, and the front rank died, and the general sat and the lines on the map moved from side to side.
