Anti US Soviet Propaganda from the Cold War

NATO's Image in Soviet Union

NATO was "the enemy" according to official domestic policy, within the Iron Curtain countries. The rhetoric was that the Iron Curtain was necessary, in order to keep the Capitalist hordes out, otherwise they would invade and destroy, their revered Socialism. This was taught, in schools and constantly broadcast, on their mass media. Just imagine our Red Scare, on steroids and continuing, indefinitely, without any objections, what-so-ever. If you objected to anything, in the media, you ran the risk of being labelled "Dissident" and could subsequently be sent to a Gulag concentration camp or death camp.

Thanks. I remember also seeing North Vietnamese cartoons - however I can't find them on Youtube.

I'm also a fan of old posters. The internet has many good sites on the subject. Old Communist Chinese posters are still the most attractive if you ask me.

Here's a few sites that might be interesting to some here...

Other cool items were things like cigarette cards, post-cards and, of course, stamps.
