Fighters of the art front: Kukryniksy against Goebbels' propaganda

Three weeks before the start of the war, Hitler signed a special directive on the use of propaganda during Operation Barbarossa. Today this propaganda machine is known to all as Goebbels. It was Goebbels and his department who created the illusion that the "liberators" were going to the East and that these "liberators" were welcomed with joy by Soviet citizens.


Nazi propaganda had an impact on both the inhabitants of Germany itself and the inhabitants of the territories occupied by the Germans and their henchmen. However, how great was the irritation of the Hitlerites when the Goebbels propaganda machine faced effective opposition.

The caricatures of the famous group of artists - the Kukryniksy - became a real symbol of the Soviet struggle against Nazism. They were often called the fighters of the art front, as the effect of their work was sometimes incredible. This greatly annoyed the representatives of Goebbels' circles.

Kukryniksy posters and drawings were printed both for the rear and for the front. The impact of the artistic imagery was truly impressive. These drawings were kept and distributed by soldiers on the front line. In addition to informational and political significance, they had a personal significance for the overwhelming majority, prompting them to stand against the enemy until victory. And the victory eventually came.

The film on the channel "Russia 1" tells about the activities of the Kukryniksy - artists Mikhail Kupriyanov, Porfiry Krylov and Nikolai Sokolov - unique in the world stories creative trio of masters.

    Some of the Kukryniksy posters are still relevant. It is only necessary to replace Germany with the USA, and the USSR with the Russian Federation. It looks like the fascists fled to the West for a reason.

          it is so, just how to define for a start: what is good and what is bad. Moreover, at the legislative level. That's when for "bad" will be asked to the fullest extent of the law, and for "good" will be rewarded fairly, then the "law of conservation of energy"

            Oh ... Elena, we're going into metaphysics. Let's start with Mayakovsky's poem “what is good and what is bad”. Good deeds are always visible, even if not immediately ... but it is visible!
            We can influence the legislative level only by not passing the Elections (they will decide everything for us).

          Yes, but only the "well-wishers from the authorities" without straining too much, they will give you such a bunch of dirty tricks that even a million of your good deeds will not overpower them.

        Yeah ... "Rough age. Rough morals. Romanticism is not ..."

        The basic surrogate ideologeme remained - around Russophobes, a ring of enemies, envious-grabbing ... etc.

        This is Yes! But they have a lot of talented ditties, quatrains and good poetry and songs. This is generally a topic for a separate article. I hope - we will wait! wink

          Sokolov wrote in his memoirs that Marshak offered them poetry. They themselves, it seems, did not write.
