San Diego Union anyone?

"Heartfield unleashed his sharpest satire on Hitler's F├╝hrerkult (cult of the leader), the basis of German Fascism. These montages parody Hitler's most iconic poses, gestures, and symbols to create the impression that one need only to scratch the thin surface of Fascist propaganda to uncover its absurd reality.

In this cover for the AIZ, Heartfield used a difference in scale to dramatize Hitler's relationship to Germany's wealthy and financially supportive industrialists. The leader is seen as a puppet whose now-infamous gesture reads as the acceptance of monetary influence."

Special Thanks! to "Down with Tyranny", "United for Peace", San Diego Coalition for Peace and Justice" and the "San Diego Green Party" for the announcement of saturdays Dumpin'Duncan "Pancakes for Peace"
