Fascism – Enemy of Nations, a TASS poster with a poem, written by Demian Bednii, translated by Julia Alekseyeva

Illustration for article titled The Greatest Soviet Propaganda Posters Ever

Unfortunate country under the deadly heat.
Getting the corpses ready for future graves,
Laughing brazenly before death, twisting his rotten, evil grin,
The Fascist decay of worn-down teeth.

Еverything desecrated! In dirt is freedom and culture,
Into oppressive slavery is labor bound.
Onto all of Germany a figure is spread
Ominously dark, the Fascist evil octopus.

The octopus pulls its furry paws
To the north and south, east and west.
In Spain, the Fascist satraps are stunned,
The persistent germ of the People's Front.

The Fascist messengers dart all over the Balkans,
Disturb the Polish,
Connive Japanese plans,
While bringing verbal gifts to various countries
Who want to emblazon a swastika in their coat of arms

The fascist octopus, opening up the hope of its mileposts,
Began to furiously trumpet a march into our Union.
So what? Let him thrust his four paws at us,
We'll be able to chop them off!
