"choose Thälmann"

Seen on a wall in Görlitz.   Ernst Thälmann was the Communist leader who stood against Hitler in the presidental election (actually won by Hindenburg) of  1932.  When the Nazis came to power in 1933 he was imprisoned and eventually executed in August 1944.

It's unlikely this sign is original, probably it was created for a DDR movie.
