This Is the Party and Its Leader

Translation / Interpretation / Caption Text

In this poster Moshe Sneh (1909-1972) is being kicked by a boot marked MAPAM. Sneh was leader of the General Zionists in Poland from 1933 until his emigration to Palestine before the war. In Palestine he was the head of the Haganah from 1941-1946. In 1948 he joined MAPAM and left it in 1952 to establish a pro-Soviet party of his own, the Left Faction, which merged later with the Israel Communist Party (MAKI). This poster describes him as a communist leader due to his political past. The demonstrating figures at the bottom of the poster - supposedly communists - hold placards saying: "Boo to Zionism"; "There is no Jewish people" and; "Against aliyah"
