The government is encouraging people to not mention any important details that may be beneficial to enemies like the Germans, as there may be spies in the country. This is influential to the people because it makes the British more aware that there may be people listening to their conversations. Also, this will help in reducing the inside information of Britain to Germany, as the people will not let go of any important information unaware of their surroundings.
Germany: late 1943 or early 1944.
The caption reads: "The Jew: The inciter of war, the prolonger of war." Courtesy of Dr. Robert D. Brooks.
