to an SS propaganda poster in order to recruit dutch people for the SS in the Westland region (around Hoek van Holland where the most greenhouses are). It includes a cross to defend against the soviet threat as a symbol of christianity. Maybe it is this type of propaganda that casts a shadow over some of Wilders' argumentation and portrayal of the situation. The picture is part of a photostream that includes a number of such posters. In the light of today's conflict I find them most interesting.
