I'm interested in learning something about the "ancient" PR of the former Soviet Union countries. Propably I will consider myself on the "PR/propaganda History" on my further blog publications of the Ex Soviet Union.
Today, I want to go back to a poster campaign of the WW II. "Watch out, enemies are listening"
I found this poster and a translation on this topic-releated blog: http://artpostersofwar.com
"The walls do even listen
It doesen't take too long
from chattering to treason"
In 1941 the motive was created by Nina Vatolina. It shows a woman who is instructing silence to the audience. So the Soviet people should care about what they're talking about. "The walls do even listen" - I guess behing the walls lurks the Nazi Regime in this case.
After I found the Soviet poster, I remembered there were similar posters in the Nazi propaganda. For example a poster like this one:
The Nazis wanted to alert the people that there could be spys from the enemy everywhere but otherwise it was also a warning for the German citizens that they really should watch out what they were talking about. To voice; disbelief in the ultimate victory of the Nazis, was a crime.
