  • Summer 1919
Ballots are falling all over the Country.

 

Against Russian Red, only the Blue-White

Of the Bavarian People's Party.

 

This is another of the anti-Bolshevik posters with which the Catholic Party (which in Bavaria had adopted the name Peoples Party) sought to influence the deeply conservative electorate. It shows a rather ugly man, with stereotypical Jewish features, fleeing from a deluge of Blue and White Ballots. In the original, the man is carrying a bright red handkerchief, hence the motto of the poster.
