WHO IS AFRAID OF PEACE?
The Germans show you the peace to frighten you. Why? Because they are frightened. Peace means the end of the tyranny of the expansionist Germany.
IT MEANS NEW LIFE FOR ROMANIA
THE Soviet Government declares that it has no intension to annex any parts of the Romanian nation, nor to change its social structure.
(declaration of Molotov 2 April 1944 the day they passed the River Prut)
We will punish the real guilty ones, the criminal rulers of the Axis, with enormous severity. Citizens of Axis nations should not fear.
(Roosevelt 13 February 1943)
Launched by British Royal Air Force and US Air Force
[Page Break]
ROMANIANS!
[First Column]
You know very well that…
…the alliance with Germany has brought you 500,000 deaths
…Hitler brought the war into your country and the allied airplanes over your cities
…Germany has lost the war
BUT
It is not enough to know the truth
And to expect miracles
[/First Column]
[Second Column]
The common sense tells you that…
…you are on the wrong side of barricade
…the barricade will be crushed
…Romania will be crushed with it
IF
You do not stop your relations with Germany and
You do not resist the Germans by all means
[/Second Column]
WITHOUT GERMANY-
YOU WOULDN’T HAVE HAD THE WAR
WITH GERMANY-
YOU WILL NEVER HAVE PEACE
“…if the satellite nations continue in war on the side of Nazi Germany, the consequences will be disastrous for those nations and the terms imposed will be tough.”
(from the common English-American-Russian declaration toward Germany’s satellites)
