"To My Peeps!"

by Ryan Mijumbi

The War Riddle was a neat and informative board like game. The War Riddle asked questions about World War I, and you had to answer them by turning the discs with the letter to get the correct answer. Back then, whoever solved it was offered a lot of Krone ($).
The "To My Peoples" announcement was more like an Austria-Hungarian license to enter World War I since this document was published right after the July Crisis.
In this picture above, the soldiers could write letters from the field, and some letters were picked to be published to the public. Later, the Library asked to keep the letters afterwards to put in their war collection.
On Empress Zita Day, lottery tickets could be bought for 20 heller. Even during the war, they still had this day and the picture to the left was a special ticket for 1917.
This document to left was an announcement of how the Jewish community was mourning the death of the Archduke. The Emperor saw this as loyalty to the empire.
Propaganda began to become prevalent in the 19th century. The picture to the left was a picture sheet used as propaganda to get Austria-Hungary to have interest in the war.
The weird metal coil on this mans hand was Spitzy's radialis splint, which helped people like this man to pick things up and use their hands properly. This image was spread around to show that invalids weren't mistreated.
