Content: Picture caption: "Gegen diese brutalen Pläne stand das ganze deutsche Volk. In der Metallspende zum Geburtstag des Führers beweis erneut seinen Opferwillen, um Deutschlands Rüstung in seinem Existenzkampf zu stärken."
Content: Scrap metal drives took place in all belligerent nations, as much to foster a sense of community participation as to collect needed metal. The sign behind the lions says "Metal contributions from the German people".
