Heartfield versus Hitler

From the cover of John Willett's
book about John Heartfield

Hitler was no surprise

Willett's book Heartfield versus Hitler is an absolute refutation to the many who attempted to excuse their tolerance and/or support of Hitler's rise to power with the disingenuous claim:

"We did not know."

As Heartfield's images from the 1930s make clear, Hitler's character and intentions were far from secret.

See also the work of American journalist George Seldes who like Heartfield not only predicted the consequences of the Third Reich, but also documented the multifaceted support Hitler received from business interests both in the United States and Germany.
