image: a distraught and tearful mother holds up the limp and partly mutilated body of her baby, standing before the baby's
cot with a crucifix on the wall behind. The print is rendered in stark monochrome, the black cloak and dress of the mother serving to
emphasise the grim nature of the scene. This dramatic characterisation of the German forces as baby-killing savages was fairly typical of
French wartime propaganda from this period. The hellish scene is further highlighted by the inclusion of passages from Dante's 'Inferno' at
the bottom of the print.
