  • Campaign poster urging West Prussians to vote for Germany, as a white Polish eagle attacks a defenseless, screaming infant who anxiously raises his arm to protect himself. A woman rushes forth from left to protect the screaming child. The Polish side is here portrayed as a vicious bird of prey that tries to usurp the former German territory. The poster is a targeted appeal to the people of the area Marienwerder in West Prussia (now Kwidzyn in Poland) to vote for Germany.
