German propaganda booklet, ‘Zwischen gestern und morgen’ (‘Between Yesterday and Tomorrow’), Verlag August Grubbel, Leipzig, 1933, urging German voters to reject Communism and embrace the NSDAP in the 1933 federal election. The cover of the pamphlet contrasts the red flag of communism with the swastika, representing a struggle between an ignominious past and a glorious future for Germany. The contents and illustrations within perpetuate the myth of the ‘Stab in the Back’ by Jewish bankers, politicians, and businessmen as the cause of Germany’s defeat in the World War, and promise a return to glory with the election of Hitler and others to the Reichstag. 20 pages, 6.5 X 9.5 inches, small tear on the front cover on the bottom left.
