Object | Accession Number: 2008.342.2

Nazi propaganda poster produced for the March 29, 1936, Reichstag election and plebiscite on the remilitarization of the Rhineland. Designed by Hans Meier, it presents a then: 1932 and now: 1935 illustration with stacked coins surrounded by needy people to show the increase in Winter Charity donations received and aid provided thanks to Hitler. The Winter Charity was an annual campaign held by the Nazi People’s Welfare Organization to provide money, clothes, and food to German people in need. The election had only Nazi party candidates. The referendum was to approve, after the fact, the German reclamation of sovereignty of the Rhineland in western Germany, an area that had been demilitarized under the Treaty of Versailles; 98.9% of the population voted in support of the Nazis.
