The Front-Illustrierte consists of four pages and was spread out by the Sowjet Union amongst German soldiers at the eastern front as propaganda like they did with leaflets. This collection originally came from the personal collection of propaganda artist Aleskandr Zhitomirsky (1907 - 1993) who had designed most of the impressive photo montages for the Front-Illustrierte. His original photo montages are part of the collection of the Ne Boltai - museum in Prague and were exhibited in 2016 in the Art Institute of Chicago.
