Das letzte Stuck Brot raubt Ihnen der Kapitalismus (literally translates to "Capitalism Robs Them of the Last Piece of Bread"), the 1932 German political campaign poster promoting the election of Ernst Thalmann for President of Germany. Of course, Thalmann, leader of the Communist Party of Germany (KPD), lost to Adolf Hitler, and was later imprisoned and eventually executed in the Buchenwald concentration camp. Note that this poster features an image of a child eating bread by John Heartfield. Note that during World War II (WWII), John Heartfield was a famous anti-Nazi artist activist, working in England. His early images of the Weimar Republic were warnings about the rise of fascism. During World War II, his photomontages Of The Nazi period had made him a target for Nazi assassination. Heartfield rose to number-five on the Gestapo's Most-Wanted List. However, once the war was over, countries that should have honored him denied him sanctuary. It was an era when western politicians appeared to view communism as a greater threat than Adolf Hitler's Army. When he finally returned to East Germany in 1950, East German officials were especially suspicious of emigres who return "late" from exile in the West. John Heartfield spent too many years enjoying English democracy and on his return he immediately garnered the attention of the Stasi (the East German secret police). He was labeled a traitor to the GDR and narrowly escaped a trial for treason. His youthful support of utopian communism now ran into communist betrayal. Heartfield was not admitted to the East German Academy of Arts for six years and only because of the efforts of Bertolt Brecht he was finally accepted in 1956. This severely limited his ability to work as an artist and he was denied health benefits when he suffered heart attacks. Only a few years before his death in 1968 the East German regime started to recognize his work and permitted exhibitions east and west of the Iron Curtain.
