Collection highlights: Poster

We asked our staff, trustees and friends of the Library to choose a special selection of items from our collection.

The Wiener Holocaust Library holds a number of posters and political cartoons covering a broad range of themes connected with the Holocaust, World War Two, and Nazi society. As well as showing Nazi recruitment and antisemitism, the Library’s collection also contains anti-Nazi posters, Allied recruitment for nursing and the war effort generally, and a large number connected to the 1936 Olympic Games.
