Visit Palestine poster from 1936

Postby borjastick » 8 years 8 months ago (Wed Jun 13, 2012 11:38 am)

I think this is very interesting. Not only is it a very attractive design but it proves more than the three debunked myths as detailed in the text. I think it also adds more weight, should any more be needed, about the exodus of German jews from Germany in the mid thirties. These were of course all added back into the body count by holocaustians to make the death count add up to six million or more.

Apparently this poster was used extensively in Germany at the time to persuade jews to go and settle in Palestine. As we know those seeking to do this were expedited with little hindrance whilst those seeking to go to an alternative such as UK/US/Canada were frustrated a little.

Visit Palestine was originally designed by Franz Kraus and published by the Tourist Association of Palestine, a Zionist development agency. We see the vast walled city of Jerusalem: trim parks, green gardens, urban dwellings, and a central landmark, the Dome of the Rock mosque.

With this one poster pulled out of the Zionist attic, three core myths are debunked. The first myth is that Palestine had ever been a land without people. Obviously someone lived in these houses and someone tended these gardens. The second myth is that Palestine was a vast desert awaiting cultivation. The resplendent tree in the foreground suggests that the land surrounding Jerusalem was much more than barren desert. The third myth is that there never was a Palestine. Of course there was a Palestine, and here it is, called by name in a Zionist-published poster.

During the early days of the Israel-building process, Zionist strategists had to simultaneously project different and sometimes conflicting images of Israel to different audiences in order to draw the critical mass and range of support the young movement desperately needed. Visit Palestine is just one out of a whole pre-independence category of posters referred to as the recruit Zion genre.

Why is the poster in English if it was used in Germany?

Well the word visit is in English, the word Palestine is ok. But perhaps VISIT means the same or similar in many european countries. Either way I don't think this detracts.

The obvious and trivial answer would appear to be that this particular example is in English, but it would be available in several languages, like any tourism materials.

It's a wild-goose chase to try and find this poster in German. I have searched everywhere on the Internet, I figured that if it exists in English it presumably would exist in German and therefore a copy would logically also be available on the Internet someplace, but there's nothing to be found.

It is really very interesting and really not only from the point of view of design.
Anyway, thanks for sharing and as a newcomer I wanna say that I'm glad to join the community where so important topics are discussed.

Here's a tourist poster partly in german from a zionist congress in Wien 1925, promoting tourism.

Surely Anglojewry was capable of generating its own independent publicity materials in the 1930s?

Yes, one certainly likes to think so Etienne.
