It wasn't patriotism, it asked for what the soldier said, not the historian. In the soldier's extract, there was no mention of patriotism, that was only mentioned by the guy who used the two primary sources to write his secondary source
Ahh shit, another one that's wrong.

It most certainly was. Yes, it is trying to show the Germans as inhumane, but is that REALLY the fundamental message of the poster? The text was the answer, "A British woman wouldn't let this happen and a British women wouldn't forget it." Also "Red Cross or Iron Cross." What's the purpose of having that if it's trying to show them as inhumane? The poster is a call to action for women to enlist into the red cross
+1 you had to look at the deeper meaning
propaganda's purpose is to call people to ACTION (ie recruitment, red cross)
how did they do that?
by appealing to their emotions by making germans look inhumane.

BTW im fairly sure it was a) germans were inhumane

the question was what was the MESSAGE (i think)

the message was germans were inhumane, the AIM of it was to recruit women

Yea I agree with you. The emphasis was placed on the nurse woman. it also mentioned that the British women wouldn't forget it, suggesting there is a sense of collective hatred towards the Germans among the Red Cross recruits. Kind of like you join the nurses you have the right to be mad and hate the Germans? idkkkk

The propaganda poster wasn't to make Germans seem inhumane. It was propaganda for the RED CROSS. Its aims are to promote the red cross and by portraying germans as inhumane it aimed to attract women to contribute to the war efforts by working for the red cross comparing it to the 'iron cross'.

Hmmmmm I didn't put the patriotism one I'm pretty sure.. I think I put the changing of war attitudes over time or something... cause I just sort assumed that was the general theme of the source questions..

It asked for the message not the aim.


Poster: Hey guys Germans are inhumane harhar (message) ---> anti-German sentiment--->recruitment (aim)

Put yourself in the shoes of a woman in wartime Britain. Do you see that poster and think "Oh! I might volunteer!" or do you think "Urgh what a cruel race of people! Even their Red Cross workers are evil to the core". It doesn't once refer to recruitment when British propaganda about war bonds, recruitment etc was very direct.

The Germans had their own Red Cross in WW1. The writing said "Red Cross or Iron Cross?", suggesting that even as a German organization that aids people, it is inherently evil because it is German.

"No British woman would do it" is only there to contrast the morals of the two countries, to affirm Britain is good and Germany is bad. The answer is the Germans are inhumane.

OMG!! My thoughts exactly^^
I think that ppl thought the poster aimed at recruitment because since the German nurse wasn't giving the guy water, it would provoke women to enlist so that they can help their soldiers. But that doesn't make sense- why would a German nurse help the British soldier in the first place- they are meant to be caring for their own German casualities. So, to me the answer was that it was to show that Germans were inhumane

This. My teacher said it was inhumane. It is comparing the 'Red Cross' to the German 'Iron Cross'. Saying 'no German woman would do it' or whatever the wording was is just reinforcing the contrast between the two countries thus further establishing the 'horrors' of Germany. Just because the section was on recruitment doesn't mean anything - the question that specified this source was recruitment and PROPAGANDA and propaganda attempted to make the enemy look worse. That's what I got out of it anyway.
