1928 cartoon showing death hovering over "Radium Girls" who died young from bone cancers after ingesting the radioactive element for years while painting watch dials. Mae Keane, the last of the radium girls, died on March 1, 2014 at the age of 107.
The Treaty of Versailles was a peace settlement that ended WW1 with Germany to blame. This political cartoon shows an embarrassed and angry German crawling out of the Treaty of Versailles. This implies that putting all the blame on Germany did not accomplish much but angered the Germans, which eventually led to the start of WW2 by the forming of NAZI's as shown on the helmet.
