This poster adverises a fundraiser taking place in the streets of Austria during the Second World War. As a means of propaganda, Hitler's Thrid Reich often assembled public rallies in order to boost local morale with rousing speeches. Money raised during this collection would have been used to benefit Axis forces on their various European campaigns.
