Caricature of Hitler weeping amidst the ruins of a German city. Graffiti on the wall to his right states ' Wir Kapitulieren nie' which translates as ' We never surrender' and the flag of the third Reich lies in tatters, the flagpole snapped to his left. On the signs on a ruined building in the foreground is just visible it reads 'REICHSKANZELEI' or Reichs Law Firm. The print has been mounted on dark grey card. A title in German is printed bottom centre, beneath the image, in gold ink. There are no Polish, English or French titles for this image.

The original drawing reproduced in this offset lithograph was created by Polish artist Stanislaw Toegel (1905-1953) while held in a German labour camp at Gotteningen.
