1934 Propaganda Card
Bill Ruh sends this card, written 25.6.34 and showing the sender’s writing over the text at the top. Printed in 4 colors + black, it is under the auspices of the Arge for boundary line study. The written message describes a tour of Danzig:

My Dear, In your dear letter which I receive d today, you say that I’m always speaking of “highlights”. But this is how I really feel. About Marienburg I must repeat myself. I would have liked to stay for another day to enjoy the fine art and culture of the castle once more. Again and again I wish to bring you and Klaus to this place. Moved in to Danzig while the most beautiful, weather. Thru our connection with “Greiser” could get a guide. He was brilliant. Visited Artushof, Trinity Church, Rathaus, Marienk irche. In the afternoon, a harbor excursion. Great impressions. Wednesday afternoon at 4:47 we will be in Wilhelmshaven. I’m looking forward to this very much.

Greetings to you and Klaus,
Your Hans
