0070 | Poster | Gebirgstruppe der Waffen-SS



Recruitment poster for mountain troops of the Waffen-SS. Inscription: "Enlist in the mountain troops of the Waffen-SS!" All SS mountain divisions except for one (6th "Nord") were formed to fight the Yugoslav guerrillas: 7th "Prinz Eugen", 13th "Handschar" and 21st "Skanderbeg" (formations of the 23rd "Kama" and 24th Karst Jäger divisions were also initiated, but were never completed); they consisted mainly of local volunteers (ethnic Germans, Croats, Bosnian Muslims and Kosovo Albanians), and they were primarily remembered for numerous war crimes. The poster is a work of Prof. Ottomar Anton, one of the best known propaganda artists of the Third Reich.

Regrutni plakat za brdske jedinice SS-trupa. Natpis: "Prijavite se u brdske jedinice SS-trupa!" Sve brdske SS-divizije osim jedne (6. "Sever") formirane su radi borbe protiv jugoslovenskih ustanika: 7. "Princ Eugen", 13. "Handžar" i 21. "Skenderbeg" (formiranje 23. "Kama" i 24. kraško-lovačke divizije je takođe bilo započeto, ali nije dovršeno); bile su sastavljene uglavnom od domaćih dobrovoljaca (folksdojčera, Hrvata, bosanskih muslimana i kosovskih Albanaca), a upamćene su prvenstveno po mnogobrojnim ratnim zločinima. Plakat je delo prof. Otomara Antona, jednog od najpoznatijih propagandnih umetnika Trećeg Rajha.
