Original Third Reich propaganda poster, 27 3/4" x 29", featuring a large portrait of Adolf Hitler over a simpering quote from Hitler Youth leader Baldur von Schirach: "That is the greatest thing about him: that he is not only our Fuhrer and hero to many, but he himself: straight, firm and simple; that in him the roots of our world rest, and his soul touched the stars, and he nevertheless remained a Mensch, just like you and me." The printed artist's signature "Ahrle" appears at center right, with a publishing line at bottom indicating release by "Bildpropagandawerk des Reichsbildberichterstatters der N.S.D.A.P.", with the additional note "Kunstblatt fur die Zeit Vom 20. April - 26. April 1944" ("Art sheet for the period From April 20 - April 26, 1944", incidentally the week of Hitler's birthday) at bottom right. Shows two large, torn period file holes at the top edge with additional small chips and tears to the edges, some repaired on the verso with cello tape, else very good.
