PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A bit of German propaganda from World War I
Complete with stereotypes all to popular at the time.


I rather like old postcards. They show a little bit of history.
This one is from the History Of Racism file as well as the WW I file.
I have used it for classroom discussions of stereotypes.

I have decided to charge for these as I feel it will not be printed of or used lightly. Even today 100 years after it was mailed it they can still hurt feelings, And this these were considered mild for its time!!!


Please note: these are very large prints (this one is 600 dpi) and can be resized to taste. Legal sized paper works well I find. The results that I liked best for these is on (like the originals) cheap cardstock.


SO: The first one is:

The title is in German - it says: Am Rhein da ligt ein Stadtchen.
In English: On the Rhine is little town
The line is from the German- Jewish poet Heinrich Heine who most chilling said "that where they burn books they will burn people next.

It is a printing of a tinted and altered photograph drawing on lower grade cardstock.

The back has a nice example of a feldpost stamp - franked, and clearly dated.
The card itself was written in permanent metallic pencil.

And the second one:
The title is in German - it says: Letztes Clufgebot In Englis - "last stand".

It is a printing of a pen and ink drawing on surprisingly high grade matte paper.


The back has a nice example of a feldpost stamp - franked, and clearly dated.
The card itself was written by an Oberstlenitant -Sr. lieutenant in permanent metallic pencil.
