Large campaign poster with a drawing of a smiling mother and her 3 blonde children who have a bright future thanks to Adolf Hitler

Object | Accession Number: 2008.342.7

Nazi propaganda poster produced for the March 29, 1936, Reichstag election and plebiscite on the remilitarization of the Rhineland. It features a drawing by Werner von Axster-Heudtlass depicting an idealized German mother with three young children. It reminds votes of the programs launched by Hitler’s government to celebrate Motherhood and to provide support to racially pure families. 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.
