Description

Certainly one of the most powerful images of agitation-propaganda produced during the war. A hooded man, manacled against a war, awaits his death by firing squad. The cryptic message, in a telegraph ticker style, is shown over the image and concerns “All men of Lidice, Czechoslovakia” where the entire village was abolished. Mint. Scarce.
