Vorwärts zu den III. Weltfestspielen der Jugend, Ausschnitt

Poster Collection

The poster collection is made up of the stocks from the Museum für Deutsche Geschichte (MfDG) and the Deutsches Historisches Museum (DHM) that were merged together after the reunification of Germany. The collection comprises some 80,000 posters from the early period of poster-making at the end of the 19th century up to the present day and documents many areas of economic, cultural, political and social life.

The collection focuses on German political posters. But because posters, far beyond their immediate propagandist, promotional or informational purpose, are also historical documentations of developments in everyday life and mentality, the DHM also collects posters from the areas of economy, technology and culture.
