Hi I need help finding where this cartoon was originally published
Its the LEV HAAS (Czech,1901-1983 "Do not trust him! The kulak is the most hardened enemy of socialism") one.
Sorry I couldn't post the link.
Look at that first link -- seems to be 1953. Check it out to make sure.
See if you can read the caption of
It says it was published in 1953. It looks to me like Clementa Gottwalda is the source publication.
Clement Gottwald was the first Communist president of Czechoslovakia, and took power in 1948 following a coup and assassination. He died in 1953, just after the death of Stalin. Why his name appears at the bottom of the Kulak poster is a mystery to me.
When I googled the Klementa Gottwalda it came up as an ex Czcheckslovakian (sorry spelt that wrong) prime minister who was also a communist and stalinist.
I'm sorry I can't read the link that your have up there, Writeacher.
Yep, sorry posted a bit after that came up.
