This is an original vintage poster from 1945 promoting an art lottery to raise money for Bornholm that was heavily bombed in the last day of the WWII.

On May 7 and 8, Nexø and Rønne were bombarded by Soviet aircraft without warning. Ten Bornholmers and many more Germans lost their lives during the bombing.

The bombings were meaningless from a military point of view as Germany had surrendered on all fronts the night between 7 and 8 May. Danish radio was not broadcasting the bombing because of fear of spoiling the liberation festivities in Denmark.

In great condition mounted on linen.

This is an Authentic Original Vintage Poster from its time. It's not a new reproduction.
