How similar are the messages of sources F & G

Extracts from this document...


How similar are the messages of sources F & G Source F and G seem to portray similar ideas with both pictures having a dominant figure of a person in Nazi uniform standing over a dead body. The fact that both pictures portray the Nazis to be brutal murderers shows that the cartoons are anti-Nazi and are criticizing the events of Kristallnacht and the dubious nature of the Nazi party's cover story.
