Notes
Content : Blemishes on image.

Content : In order to stir feelings against Poland, German propaganda played up attacks on ethnic Germans living there. While there were indeed such attacks, they were nowhere near as numerous or co-ordinated as the Germans claimed.

Content : Picture caption: "Unter riesiger Anteilnahme des ganzen Landes wird in Ansbach der durch polnische Mörderhand erschlagene Volksgenosse Alois Sornik beigesetzt."

Content : Title translates German picture caption
