The above-named is well known as a
staunch anti-fascist. As a result of his
artistic achievements in photomontage,
as well as to culture and politics, he has
made a name for himself well beyond the
borders of Germany. He has greatly
developed the art of photomontage.
Due to persecution by the Nazis,
he was forced to leave Germany and
emigrated first to Czechoslovakia and
later to England, where he still lives.
He has continued his work in exile.
Since the end of the war, exhibitions
of his photomontages have been
staged in America, France, Switzerland,
Czechoslovakia, and in the Soviet Union.
His work has been generally well received
by the press, especially by the French Poet
Louis Aragon. Heartfield is still sprightly
and artistically active. He wishes to
return to Germany. We can support this
wish most sincerely.”
