Death’s HeadWhite Russian (pro-Czarist) poster depicting the Red Bolshevik, Leon Trotsky (Jewish name Lev Davidovich Bronstein).

Note the Christian cross broken in the upper left and the White Russian being threatened by the Mongolians in the lower right — even then Marxist Jewish extremists jacked-up the other races to do their bidding.
