Description:
Ink on paper sarcastically titled poster issued by the National Confederation of Workers (CNT) using photos of bombing of Madrid in attempt to document the horrors of the siege; photomontage enclosed within a bloody red swastika includes photos of ruined buildings and corpses of children in a morgue to underscore the barbarity of the aerial bombong; sepia photos outside swastika emphasize the Nazi role in the first massive bombardment of civilians in history.
