Anti-Nazi drawing published in the PM newspaper

Object | Accession Number: 1991.182.20

This happened in 1934 Wedding, a Berlin suburb where lots of working class live, and a friend of mine saw the whole affair. The underfed laborer had allowed the swastika banner to go by without saluting it. He was shot dead by one of the "conquerors of the streets" as the Storm Troopers were called. And the policeman at the right exchanges formalities with the murderer. There was a lot of this sort of thing that year.
