Heartfield versus Hitler: Gallery

From: AIZ, June 1933


Mit seinen Phrasen will er die Welt vergasen
He'll gas the world with his words

Der Mann, der die deutche Verfassung beschwor, spricht jetzt von Frieden. Er wird ihn halten wie seinen Eid
After swearing to uphold the German Constitution, this man now talks about peace. He'll respect peace as little as he respects his oath

Comment: When a businessman talks earnestly to me about his honesty, I always check to make sure my wallet is still in its place. What about the "world leaders" who take great pains to promise us peace? The con man's motto: Tell them that they want to hear and make it believable.
