“ Christian people! Will you allow Spartakus to tear down your churches? Answer on election day! Bavarian People’s Party.” German propaganda, 1919.
An interesting piece. Very early and quite different from what this kind of rhetoric eventually turned into in the 1930s and 40s, but it is making me think the of the rise of strong nationalistic pro-Volk movements after WWI, and hinting at the future importance of Bavaria and the politicians who came from it and glorified it as the cradle of all things folk and Germanic in the following decades.

"Peace of the Great Release" poster, 1918. The source suggests these poster may have been a book cover, but I’m wondering if maybe it was the cover of some sheet music for a popular song, considering the bit about "Henley’s Rhymes and Rhythms."

German propaganda poster with a quotation emploring the holy flame to never extinguish and forever burn brightly for the Fatherland, 1918.
On a more somber, realistic note, sacrificial altar imagery like this makes Wilfred Owen’s Parable of the Old Men and the Young all the more apt.
