Description

Front: Drawing of a man in green militry uniform sweeping away Bolshevik, Jewish and Masonic symbols and people.

Back: Coupons for different rations.

Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: The Falangistas, under General Francisco Franco, having won the Spanish Civil War in the late 30s, allied themselves with Nazi Germany. A hand silk screened artwork of political and military propaganda, this depicts the giant Falangista soldier against the backdrop of the Spanish flag, sweeping away his opponents: the Freemasons (compass and t-square), the Jews (symbolized by the financier in top hat), the Communists and Bolshevists (symbolized by the red star and the hammer and sickle), the intellectuals (professor with unhinged spectacles), and the F.A.I. (Federacion Anarquista Iberica or Iberian Anarchist Federation). The reverse of the poster consists of ten ration coupons, each displaying the Falangist symbol (a phalanx of arrows), each used for scarce wartime commodities (sugar, corn, bread, etc.). These coupons were part of the great Falangist drive of 1942. (Probably a Contemporary Copy)
