Women Communards of Montmartre; Paris Commune, 1871

Women of Montmartre pledging to fight the government troops to the death, with the slogan 'The Commune or Death', as Paris burns in the background, 1871. At the end of the Franco-Prussian war, Parisian socialists refused to surrender Paris to the rightwing French government, which led to bitter fighting on the streets of the city and large-scale executions of Communards.

The destroyed Vendome Column; Paris Commune, 1871

Illustration showing the destroyed Vendome Column, Paris, 16th May 1871. The column was pulled down by order of the Paris Commune, because it was an Imperial Monument to Napoleon I and militarism. The column was also very ugly. When the column finally fell there was rejoicing from both the Communards and the National Guard, who can be seen here celebrating, waving caps and rifles. At the end of the Franco-Prussian war, Parisian socialists set up the Commune and refused to surrender Paris to the rightwing French government. This led to bitter fighting on the streets of the city and large-scale executions of Communards.

Church Defiled in the Spanish Civil War, 1937

Illustration showing a scene in a church, with the priests dead and the poor-box robbed, during the Spanish Civil War. On the wall, a hammer and sickle motif and the legend 'Viva Russia' has been painted. The Spanish Catholic Church supported the Nationalist rebels during the Civil War, which made atrocities such as this one, supposedly performed by the Republican socialists, more inevitable. Such images, whether true or not, were certainly used for propaganda purposes, both in Spain and abroad.
