 Erwin Blumenfeld – Hitler’s Face

Nazi Objects..
While the skulls and skeletons are reminders of death in many  cultures they are seldom used to represent evil. One exception to this is found  in images of Adolph Hitler, in anti-Nazi imagery the ,eaning was clear. Hitler  was not simply the enemy, he was the personification of evil. In comic books,  posters and other popular publications, Hitler’s face can be found overlaid or substituted by skulls. These images remind the public , following the World War II, that Hitler had been agaent of death, and that all the lives lost during the  war and all victims of Nazi persecutions were his responsibility.
