Low, David Alexander Cecil, 1891-1963 :Nightmare waiting list. [9 September 1938]

Reference Number: NON-ATL-C-0086

Hitler on the left, in front of a Nazi flag, waving a sheet of paper marked 'All Germans everywhere are mine. The idea'. Behind him stands a long line of ghostly figures, each carrying a placard marked 'Polish Germans - Crisis', 'Hungarian Germans - Crisis' etc with 'British Germans' and 'U. S. A. Germans' further down the line. Low is satirising Hitler's claims to unite all Germans in one country and his encouragement to Germans in various European countries to create civil disturbances to enable invasion by the German army. The implication is that the technique will eventually be used world-wide.
