"What the Great October Socialist Revolution Gave to the Peasantry", 1943 poster defends the supposed gains since the Revolution.
Large document seeks to counter any idea that the invading Germans were liberators.

23 5/8" by 37 1/2" poster is filled with statistics as well as the familiar, obligatory references to events of the Revolution. Under the state emblem in the center, a quote from Article 1 of the Constitution of the USSR reads: "Union of Soviet Socialist Republics is a socialist state of the workers and peasants" The long quote in red at the bottom reads: "The collective farming destroyed the extreme poverty in the village - tens of millions of the poor lifted themselves to the level of well off people."

It is interesting to note that the picture at upper left reproduces a painting that purports to show Stalin and Lenin directing the assault on the Winter Palace - even though Stalin was not there and Lenin was probably somewhere else, too...

Very Good condition. The poster was originally folded but has spent many years rolled in a tube. Someone mounted it on a wall using tape on the upper right and left hand corners. When the tape was removed, it took away a small portion of the tops of the two corner pictures - fortunately, the central parts of both pictures were not affected and a restorer could easily fill in the missing portions.

Not a word of truth: classic Soviet wartime propaganda!
