Lucien Jonas : Pathos, Patriotism & Religion

1880 - 1947


A Series of 8 Illustrations from the magazine 'la Guerre Documentée'

'Les Pays Envahis'

Left : The Mandatory Salute
One Frenchman to Another - "I always carry two empty suitcases, that way I don't have to salute them."

Right : 'Courage my friend ! We're digging their graves for them."


Much like in the series 'Why We Are Fighting', in this set of 8 illustrations, 'In the Invaded Territories', Jonas illustrates the indignities endured by inhabitants of the occupied territories of France and Belgium. If anything, this series is even more emotionally manipulating and propagandistic.
