Elections 1938

Type: Document
Country of Origin: Belgium
Condition: Used
Period: 20th - mid (WW II)

Unique poster (64 on 50 cm approx.) for mass Meetings in Antwerp on 10, 11, 12, 13 February 1938. Published by REX. From Wikipedia: Léon Joseph Marie Ignace Degrelle (June 15, 1906 Bouillon – Malaga, 31 March 1994) was a Walloon Belgian politician, who in 1936 founded the Belgian fascist movement Rex. In the second world war he established the Walloon Legion of the Waffen-SS, troops who fought at the eastern front. After 1945, he was sentenced to death in absentia in Belgium. He lived until 1994 in the dictator Franco's Spain where he got asylum and a new identity.
The poster is for a number of consecutive mass meetings in Antwerp. These were organized in every major city across the country. Degrelle after all surprised in May 1936 with his overwhelming victory in the parliamentary elections and captured the Parliament with a very youthful group. He then participated somewhat overconfident in the municipal elections in ' 38. Allegedly usually with cartel lists with the VNV and others. The elections of 1939 after all made Rex come tumbling down.
In 1940 the strong political-Catholic movement of Degrelle had become an insignificant party. But nevertheless, many rexists were deported to France with the ghost trains of May 1940.
So this poster is a relic from a very short but fascinating period. The poster is damaged, some holes and cracks are visible in the picture.
