Description:

This poster was made as part of the governmental propaganda for safety and health care. It was very typical of the Socialist era to publish different kinds of propaganda posters many of which were related to healzh care. This particular one intended to protect people from diseases. The text says: "Wash the raw food! Keep the flies away from food! Wash your hands before eating!"

The composition pictures fruits being washed, bread and meat covered and a soap for washing hands. Below the soap a fly is drawn with the microscopic image if the bacteria it spreads. 

The author of the poster mostly designed propaganda posters.
