Moins de ble French propaganda poster WWII 1943

Moins de blé (1943)

  • $4000 USD

Folded French Poster: 15 3/4" x 23 3/4" (40 x 60cm)

World War II French government propaganda poster condemning the destruction of wheat crops, presumably by the Resistance.

"Moins de blé = Moins de pain" translates to "Less wheat equals less bread."

The image shows a burning stack of wheat and a ration card, implying that rations will be tighter for the general population if the destruction of crops continues.

In 1943, the north of France was under German occupation, while the south was governed by the collaborationist Vichy government.

Condition: Very Good (some wrinkling; minor wear along the borders; a small hole near the bottom of the vertical fold; a 2-inch split at the bottom of the vertical fold repaired with tape on the back; a label pasted to the back that does not affect the front)
