This was Hamburg.


[Aerial photograph of Hamburg]


Part of an aerial photograph after the RAF attacks. The area enclosed in the red square is enlarged overleaf.


“From now on we shall bomb Germany on an ever increasing scale, month by month, year by year, until the Nazi regime has either been exterminated by us or, better still, torn to pieces by the German people themselves.”

Churchill, 14 July 1941.






[Enlargement of part of the aerial photograph on obverse side]

The fronts are closing in.

The nights are becoming longer.

The RAF grows more powerful from day to day.

The Luftwaffe is helpless.

German towns lack protection.

Every night the hands of destruction move on. (“Jede Nacht rückt der Zeiger der Vernichtung weiter.”)

Every industrial town is threatened with the fate of Hamburg.

It is only a question of time.

The war is lost.

Hitler can only prolong the war.

He is fighting for time.

Time to destroy Germany.


[Explanation to photograph: The buildings are either completely destroyed or so gutted that only the empty walls remain. The light falling through the window-frames accounts for the white dots in the shadows thrown by the walls.]
