    I have spent quit a while collecting WW2 propaganda posters and flyers and I need some help from anyone who speaks/can read German.

    What I've been doing is saving the image, then renaming the file to what is says on the poster. For example, this image is a flyer I think talking about some event. Der Reichstag tagt! Im Kriegervereinshaus spricht uber dieses Thema der Fuhrer der preukischen n.jpg

    I dont want the entire thing translated, but just the big bold parts like

    Der Reichstag tagt! Dienstag 23 Februar and then anything else that makes it stand out. So, (I'll just make something up for example) the file name would be....

    The Reichstag tonight. 23 February. Pets welcome and bring a sandwich.jpg

    I have almost 300 of these files I need translated and am still getting more a few more. So far I have over 2000 Propaganda posters that are in English or already translated. I'm not sure the best way to get the files to you (email, I guess)

    Anybody want to help me?

    I can get some of it

    Dienstag = Tuesday

    The middle part says that the Fuhrer of the Prussian National Socialist - something- will speak of the following topic

    Not sure what the large letters "Kube"??? means

    Under that it says that company band 4 will be playing a march.

    Under the line it says National Socialist German Labour Party - something - Berlin

    Got the gist anyway - obviously prewar. I'm sure others will fill the blanks

    I think the -something- is "from BigBerlin"

    The title seems to be "The Reichstag daily".

    The middle part over "Kube" seems to be "In the war society house, the president of the prussian nazi fraction in parliament will talk about:"

    I believe "Kube" is the key to all the text...

    Those gothical letters are horrible to read...

    Chris, what is the best way for me to get you some of the files? This may be too daunting of a task!
