Description

This poster depicts a horde of German soldiers groping women amid crying children and tired old men and women. Some of the Germans are drunk and are on a rampage. In the background is the remains of a destroyed village and the corpse of a man hanging from a tree. Rape was a problem for both Allied and Central Powers during World War I, but the Allies emphasized the cruelty of the "Huns" throughout the war in a major propaganda campaign.
