Your Men without Work
Your Children without a Future


Throughout 1931, the economic condition of German workers and their families deteriorated, and the broad middle class, while not as immeditely affected, watched with growing uneasiness. This poster of late 1931 attempted to play to those fears. It shows an unemployed man, head bent in despair, while the woman stands behind looking out with determination.

The caption underneath sums up the pathos of Hitler's emotional appeal:


Save the German Family

Vote Adolf Hitler!
