This is an original 1944 halftone print of Germans pulling the meat off a horse carcass in 1919 due to the scarcity of food at the time. The value of the German mark declined at a fierce rate beginning in 1919, due to war reparations, the loss of land and colonies, the French occupation of the industrial Ruhr valley, and the printing of more money instead of less. In January of 1919, the United States dollar was worth 8.9 marks, and by 1922, it was worth 192 marks.
