Before you ask: Yes, this was during the time of UsefulNotes/NaziGermany. Here's the background: The artist had made anti-nazi caricatures during the WeimarRepublic, so when ThoseWackyNazis came to power, he was forbidden to publish anything. They only made an exception since V+S was completely unpolitical, and published under a pseudonym. And even so, he still had trouble with the nazis - he ended up committing suicide in GeStaPo custody.
