Stock status:

Product Description:
En travaillant en Allemagne tu seras l'ambassadeur de la qualité francaise
(Eng. "As a worker in Germany you will be the ambassador of the French quality")

Vichy French propaganda poster for the recruitment of French workers to Germany. A muscular man in overalls at an anvil with a variety of tools symbolize the worker, while the silhouette shows French landmarks (especially the Eiffel Tower) and various industrial feats.

In total, approx. 800 000 French nationals working in Germany, but those were only some 200 000 volunteers - the rest were prisoners, both political and war prisoners.

The poster was made by the artist Raoul Eric Castel, that made several propaganda posters on the same the theme, most of them with a pretty colorful tone and a total lack of german symbols and images.

After the war, Castel got his big break-through as a graphic designer and made ​​several posters for large companies - a bit strange when many artists who worked for the Axis powers were suffering after the war. Possibly this may be explained by the fact that Castel never signed his posters with his name and therefore remained anonymous in his role.

Artist: Raoul Eric Castel, 1943

This poster is a reproduction of a carefully restored original and therefore of superb quality, printed on the best paper available on the market.

This print is available in 3 different sizes. For other sizes please contact info@WorldWarEra.com for an estimate.
