Des Liberateurs? Par l'Armee du crime
Gift of the Moldovan Family Collection
Id no. 2001.A.102, Poster, French
Subject(s):  Resistance
The French title of this propaganda poster entitled, ?The Liberators?? asks a rhetorical question about the 10 members of a French resistance group represented here. Rather than liberators, the poster presents these individuals as members of ?The Army of Crime,? according to the line at the bottom of the poster. The poster identifies the individuals by name and nationality, seven of them as Jews, several as communists, and includes information about the deaths they caused and other supposed ?crimes? they committed. These individuals were all executed by the Nazis in February 1944 following a show trial designed to depict them not as French patriots but as foreign terrorists.
