Post-WWII Anti-German Propaganda

Very funny stuff:


This was shown to US soldiers being sent to occupy Germany after the war. It warns them to be on the look out for dastardly clockmakers and tells them to keep clear of German children. "German History" is depicted as a work of pure evil, but a semi-literate might find the claims a bit dubious. Apparently it was Germany who spent the time between 1871 and 1914 plotting revenge, for instance. In fact, the very existence of Germany is basically in itself considered an aggressive act. The film was directed by Frank Capra and written by Dr. Seuss. Hopefully "Chapter 4" comes soon.
