World War II Propaganda Posters A Few Guiding Questions: 1.Which parts of the design catch the audiences attention? 2.What are some of the images used to connect to the viewer? 3.What symbolism is used? 4.What is the poster trying to convince the viewer of? How does it try to do this?
Look closely at the flags that are placed on the gun barrels. What do you notice?
A recruitment poster for French Canadians
Notice the small hand coming from Britain and Europe.
How is colour used differently here? What effect does the text in this poster have on the viewer?
This poster asks “WHEN?” and then for the viewer to decide when Hitler will be beaten by the viewer’s actions.
Who is our “FRIEND” supposed to be during the war?
Posters from the Home Front
What is the Woman’s job?
Symbolism and Synthesis?
What are they trying to tell the viewer to do?
The constant fear of sabotage, and spying by an enemy affected both the Allied and Axis forces during World War Two.
French-Canadian translations of the same poster.
Posters From Germany Look for any similarities to other posters we’ve seen.
“Youth Serves the Fuhrer. All 10 Year Olds into the Hitler Youth.” As of 1936, membership in the Hitler Youth became mandatory for children 10 and up. By the end of the war, Germany was recruiting soldiers from the Hitler Youth groups.
“Our Flags are Victory!”
“You are the Front!”
“Get rid of old cloth and shoes” Do you notice anything interesting about the subject’s appearance?
This poster advertises for a paper drive, another measure to conserve raw-materials for the Axis war effort. Another Aryan depiction in German media.
This poster reads: “The Jew: The inciter of war, the prolonger of war.” This profound image is blurry. Please notice the fists at the bottom, and the way the Jewish man’s face is depicted.
