Nazi propaganda poster entitled, "Seid nicht allzu gerecht," issued by the "Parole der Woche," a wall newspaper (Wandzeitung) published by the National Socialist Party propaganda office in Munich.

The translation of the poster reads, BE NOT TOO FAIR in the judgment of our enemies, their qualities, and their deeds. Always consider that we are at war. We admit to not taking account of decorum for we fervently hate our enemies from the depths of our souls, because they threaten our lives, and because they want to imprison us in the narrowness of our national existence. Indeed, this is out of envy, malevolence and poorly concealed national jealousy.
Just as for every Englander this sentence holds true: "Right or Wrong-My Fatherland!" we hold ourselves to the maxim: "All is good, that benefits our nation, All is justified, that serves victory!"
