Cartoon: Poland-Lebensraum for the Conquered

David Low (New Zealander, 1891–1963). "Poland – Lebensraum for the Conquered," Evening Standard (London), January 20, 1940. This prescient cartoon refers to the "resettlement" eastward of conquered Polish nationals and Jews inorder to make room for German colonists. This turned out to be the first phase in the Nazi program of enslavement and extermination.
