Overview

The 'Truffle Eater. Pretty Stories and Funny Pictures' was published in 1933, the year Adolf Hitler became Chancellor of Germany. It is the earliest anti-Hitler comic book of its kind to ridicule the German dictator. This vicious attack against him is extraordinary in its analysis and understanding of the early Nazi regime.

The book follows the events in 1933, including the burning of the Reichstag in February. Here the author suggests that Goebbels was behind the fire, and the event was used by Hitler to curtail German democracy. It also covers the infamous book-burnings and increasing anti-semitic activities in Germany, and shows an acute observation of the sudden changes following the election of Hitler as Chancellor. Finally, the author of the Truffle Eater interestingly refers back to Kaiser Wilhelm and predicts that Europe will suffer a similar fate under Germany ruled by Hitler - namely war and destruction.

World Propaganda Series is published by Foxley Books. It is committed to the reproduction and analysis of propagandist material throughout history.
