"1. Mai" May 1st

May 1st in Germany is a holiday called "Tag Der Arbeit," or, International Workers' Day. This day is a celebration of laborers and the working classes that is promoted by the international labor movement, anarchists, socialists, and communists and occurs every year on May Day, May 1st, an ancient European spring holiday. The date was chosen for International Workers' Day by the Second International to commemorate the Haymarket affair, which occurred in Chicago on 4 May 1886. This Day has its origins in the labour union movement, specifically the eight-hour day movement, which advocated eight hours for work, eight hours for recreation, and eight hours for rest. The poster shows a Tag Der Arbeit Nazi pin over a red 1 with a flower behind the pin.
