'Schwarze Listen für die Schwarze Schmach'

('Black lists for the black scandal/dishonour')

A leaflet reassuring the German people that there will be no revenge against them.

It says that the horror stories that the Nazis have been spreading about what will happen to ordinary people in the event of an Allied victory are lies: 'The Nazi criminals [however], live from war and die from peace. The question is: you or them?'

The leaflet includes quotes from Winston Churchill. He states that Nazi war criminals will be tried, and that the destruction of Nazi power will immediately bring all the people of Europe bread, peace and freedom.
