Italian Racist Propaganda Poster

Year: 1944
Decade: 1940s
Century: 20th (1901-2000)

A Fascist poster showing an African-American GI offering a pillaged Venus de Milo for sale for two dollars. The fascist Italian government and its German allies produced several leaflets, posters and propaganda postcards that attacked the American blacks and depicted them as uncultured animals, thieves and rapists. This propaganda targeted the Italian people in an attempt to encourage them to fight on to protect their nation and heritage from the black barbarians who would destroy the culture” (psywar.org).
