Christliches Volk! Darf Spartakus deine Kirche Niederreissen? Gib Antwort am Wahltag! Bayerische Volkspartei / Christian People! Should Spartakus tear down your Church? Give your answer on vote day!: Scarce original Bavarian People's Party anti-Bolshevik / anti-Communist 'patriotic' postcard for the right leaning portion of the population in Bavaria, (particularly Munich) in the period of the Communist-Freikorps street battles cumulatively known as the November 1918 or 1919 Revolution, which occurred in the power vacuum after the abdication of Kaiser Wilhelm II. This card shows a Greek-helmeted man representing Spartakus, tearing down the Frauenkriche (Church of our Lady) in Catholic Munich. The radical Communist faction in Germany had taken on the name of Spartakus (Spartakists) under the leadership of Karl Liebknecht in Berlin, and Kurt Eisner in Munich. A fantastic allegorical image of the times.

A Real Photo Postcard (RPPC) photograph of Regierungstruppen / local government troops of Freikorps during the violent Strassenkampf or 'street battles' that took place between the left wing Spartakists / Communists and the center-right (Socialists, Imperialists, and Freikorps in an uneasy alliance) as both sides attempted to seize power. After early Communist victories the Socialist-Right Wing coalition (led by Friedrich Ebert) eventually won. Later, though, many of those same Freikorps soldiers turned on the Republic they helped found, yet despised, and joined the SA, where their street muscle was used by a certain Austrian corporal to propel himself into power. This card shows a guarded automobile convoy with the soldiers in German imperial uniforms stripped of most insignia but bearing a bicolor armband to denote their unit affiliation. And which separated them from many of nearly identically clad Red Guard or Communists who would wear the German uniform with a red armband or tie. ...

A Real Photo Postcard (RPPC) photograph of a Freikorps tank in Berlin in an assault against the Communists. This is one of a very few RPPCs I've ever seen showing an early Panzerkampfwagen / tank in action. This took place during the violent Strassenkampf or 'street battles' between the left wing Spartakists / Communists and the center-right (Socialists, Imperialists, and Freikorps in an uneasy alliance) as both sides attempted to seize power. After early Communist victories the Socialist-Right Wing coalition (led by Friedrich Ebert) eventually won. Later, though, many of those same Freikorps soldiers turned on the Republic they helped found, yet despised, and joined the SA, where their street muscle was used by a certain Austrian corporal to propel himself into power. In top condition, and USED with contemporaneous Berlin CDS on 10pf Germania stamp.

Der Wahlsturm fegt durchs Land! Bayrisch Weissblau gegen Russisch Rot! Bayerische Volkspartei / The Vote Storm Sweeps the Land!

This card shows a Communist Kerl (bad dude in red) cowering under the fire of the blue-white arrows of the Bavarian People's Party (Blue and white are the colors of the state of Bavaria). The radical Communist faction in Germany had taken on the name of Spartakus (Spartakists) under the leadership of Karl Liebknecht in Berlin, and Kurt Eisner in Munich. A fantastic allegorical image of the times.
