A propaganda leaflet produced by the Far Eastern Liaison Office (FELO) during the Second World War. This leaflet is written in Japanese and was distributed to Melanesia and the Netherlands East Indies. The leaflet is accompanied by an English translation of the text. The leaflet describes several events which cast doubt on the reliability of Germany as an ally. The most recent incidents discussed are the Nazis' demand for natural resources, such as rubber, produced in the Dutch East Indies, the cancellation of the visit of German engineers to Japan because of Japan's refusal to transfer natural resources from the South to Germany, and the arrest of German spies directly reporting to Hitler in the South.
