Adolf was a stinky baby

My daughter forwarded this stop-motion film from the early days of WWII. Many commenters called it propaganda. It’s certainly exaggeration – but I don’t think it was done to convince anyone of anything they wouldn’t already have thought. It’s just mockery done vigorously.

It’s a bit chilling to see China and the USSR as our allies, but that’s the way it was. I read an article recently that said if the winner of a war is the country that is better off after the war than before, only the USSR could be said to have won WWII. I don’t think I agree with either the definition of “winner” or of the designation of the USSR – but the comment did make me pause and think a while.
