"Hun Or Home" WWI Home Front Bonds Poster by Henry Raleigh (1918)

"Hun Or Home" WWI Home Front Bonds Poster by Henry Raleigh (1918)

This is an WWI American propaganda poster by prolific artist Henry Raleigh. It suggests purchasing liberty bonds is the way to choose and support the homeland over the enemy. The poster presents the image of a young woman carrying a child, fleeing a dark and shadowy figure- a Hun. This was a common way for Allied nations to depict the Germans, suggesting a barbaric and inhuman people. "Hun or Home?" the poster asks in large, bold letters at the top. Then, "Buy more liberty bonds." It is suggesting that if an American were to ignore the poster, they would be choosing the Hun over home.
