1934 Cartoons from Kladderadatsch

I've added a page of 1934 cartoons from Kladderadatsch, a leading German satirical weekly. Several portray Germany as seeking peace while the rest of the world arms. There are also cartoons on the Night of the Long Knives, the evils of the Jews, and the threat of communism.

Two examples. One claims that the increase in the Negro and Jewish population is causing great concern in the United States. The second suggests that a peace agreement between France and the Soviet Union is not likely to bring peace to Europe.
