Copenhagen, Denmark: 1945. Max Weihrauch. Newspaper.

Published shortly after V-E Day (Victory in Europe Day), this newspaper proves the Danes wasted no time in clearing out the unwanted "Nazi animals" so clearly depicted here with a Danish beauty (Mother Denmark) happily working her broom. In the background is a map of Denmark showing the date "5' MAJ" representing the day of Denmark's liberation from Nazi occupation by the British Army - a holiday still celebrated today as "Befrielsen" (The Liberation). A remarkable survivor considering the postwar shortages that followed.
