Falsifiers of History was published by the Soviet Information Bureau, attempting to whitewash the history of the Soviet Union and its international policy from the interwar period and World War II. Edited and partly written by Joseph Stalin, the propaganda booklet was issued after the U.S. State Department published a collection of documents regarding German–Soviet relations before and after the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact, titled Nazi–Soviet Relations, 1939–1941: Documents from the Archives of The German Foreign Office.

Mieczysław Berman (1903–1975) was one of the most significant Polish graphic designers. His artistic style was influenced by the art of László Moholy-Nagy, John Heartfield El Lissitsky and Aleksander Rodchenko. He created mostly political photomontages, and political, film and advertising posters. Berman’s works could be found in important collections all over the world, among them at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Getty or LACMA.
