Germany, Germany Above All (Tucholsky, Heartfield) Foreword Photo 3

by Verena Kick

This is the 4th photograph used in Tucholsky/Heartfield's "Germany, Germany Above All" (GG). It is the third photograph in the 2nd preface. Tucholsky's text does not refer to this image. This last photograph of the "Foreword" is a staged one, showing members of a club in their best Sunday frocks, some wearing sashes or uniforms. The commentary on GG lists that publication date, place and context of this photograph are known, which is not the case for the first two photographs. The third photo was in included in a photo reportage on the monarchist character of public events, despite the abolishment of the monarchy. Former aristocratic members, including the sons of Kaiser Wilhelm II, attended public events.
