Panel from a 1944 exhibition in London, England, entitled "Germany- the Evidence" showing Nazi ideology regarding marriage.

The left panel shows Adolf Hitler with a quotation: "... Not concerned 'National Socialism is not concerned with whether the children are legitimate or illegitimate. We... esteem every girl who defies outmoded conventions and justifies herself in her child born out of wedlock.'"

The right panel shows a picture of Germans producing a family tree to prove their racial purity. With the photo are the quotations:"Whehther the children": "There are plenty of willing... youths ready to unite with the women and girls... fortunately, one boy of good race suffices for twenty girls... and the girls... would gladly fulfil this demand were it not for the nonsensical, so- called civilised idea of monogamous permanent marriage." January 1941: "The extension of German living space makes it necessary to produce more children." May 1941: "Behind this war is the will to create space for the coming generation."

The back of the photo reads "British Official Photograph; Distrbuted by the Ministry of Information. D. ; The Evil We Fight.; Ministry of Information Exhibition priduced by Display &Exhibitions Division for show all over Great Britain.; Display panel"
