Selected Special Collections
Martin F. Hertz Collection
World War II propaganda ephemera, (2 scrapbooks).
Two leather-bound volumes of English-language leaflets are alternately descriptions of the good treatment given deserters and efforts to turn the British and American soldiers against one another. The predominant political theme is not the praise of the National Socialist regime but rather the "Bolshevik menace" to Europe. The Hertz Collection joins a 6,700 piece collection of the propaganda of all the participants in World War II transferred from the old Office of War Information.
