Postcards Design Project

Designer: Reut Bari

On the front of the postcard: The idea is to show the normal, human side of the most notorious mass murderers of the 20th century. On the back of the postcard: The text on the back gives the reader a background on these people, showing their monstrous, horrible achievements in the planning of the killing of all those millions of innocent people during World War Two. I chose the top brass of the Nazi Party: Reinhard Heydrich, Hermann Goring, Heinrich Himmler, Adolf Eichmann and Joseph Goebbels. Well-educated men with degrees and diplomas, model family men far from the average man. It would be expected that they would have a strong human side to them, sensitivity to human needs, compassion But alas, they proved us wrong. It seems they did not consider all mankind as humans. In a twisted and distorted way, to them, all mankind were only the Aryan race.
