Book with thoughts of Kim Il Sung. 38 pages and published in 1974. The full title is:”On The Character And Tasks Of The Trade Union In Socialist Society”. This book once belonged to Andries Oele. Inside the book you’ll find the signature of him. Oele was a well-known and notorious radical Maoist in the 1970’s in the city of Rotterdam, The Netherlands. He always stood out by standing at the back of a hall at meetings and public gatherings (such as May 1 celebrations) and shouting his slogans (“Death to capital! Long live Marxism-Leninism! Long live Chairman Mao!”). While the many small communist splinter groups were happy with any soul they could recruit, they would rather lose Andries than get rich. Nevertheless he was a member of KORO (Communist Organization Rotterdam and Surroundings). Andries Oele worked in construction so the left-wing intellectual Rotterdam got some appreciation for this: a real worker, after all. In 1977 Oele was caught in bed with someone’s wife. Her deceived husband immediately took a gun and shot both Andries and his own wife. A double murder. A Dutch Maoist publisher was asked to clean out Oele’s house. Behind the frontdoor he found a wonderful house that had been completely renovated as if it were a ship’s cabin. You had to duck to go inside and could look through portholes to other dark spaces. He collected all Oele’s books, almost entirely Marxist-Leninist works and works by old Dutch socialists, such as Troelstra and Domela Nieuwenhuis.

Big heavy statue of Felix Dzerzhinsky. Quality piece and hard to find. Felix Edmundovich Dzerzhinsky (1877-1926), nicknamed “Iron Felix”, was a Bolshevik revolutionary and official. Born into Polish nobility, from 1917 until his death in 1926 Dzerzhinsky led the first two Soviet state-security organizations, the Cheka and the OGPU, establishing a secret police for the post-revolutionary Soviet regime. He was one of the architects of the KGB. Dzerzhinsky spent four and a half years in tsarist prisons. Dzerzhinsky was beaten frequently by the Russian prison guards, which caused the permanent disfigurement of his jaw and mouth. In 1916, Dzerzhinsky was moved to the Moscow Butyrka prison, where he was soon hospitalized because the chains that he was forced to wear had caused severe cramps in his legs. Despite the prospects of amputation, Dzerzhinsky recovered and was put to labor sewing military uniforms. Felix Dzerzhinsky was freed from prison after the February Revolution of 1917. Lenin regarded Felix Dzerzhinsky as a revolutionary hero and appointed him to organize a force to combat internal threats known as Cheka. The Cheka undertook drastic measures as thousands of political opponents and saboteurs were eliminated. Besides his leadership of the secret police, Dzerzhinsky also took on a number of other roles; he led the fight against typhus in 1918, was chair of the Commissariat for Internal Affairs from 1919 to 1923, initiated a vast orphanage construction program, chaired the Transport Commissariat, organised the embalming of Lenin’s body in 1924 and chaired the Society of Friends of Soviet Cinema. A 15-ton iron monument of Dzerzhinsky, which once dominated the Lubyanka Square in Moscow, near the KGB headquarters, also became known as Iron Felix.

Very big and heavy statue of Nikolay Chernyshevsky and signed. Made of aluminium alloy. Nikolay Gavrilovich Chernyshevsky (1828-1889) was a Russian revolutionary, materialist philosopher, writer, editor, critic, and socialist. He was the leader of the revolutionary movement of the 1860s, and had an influence on Vladimir Lenin, Emma Goldman, and Svetozar Marković. He graduated at the local seminary where he learned English, French, German, Italian, Latin, Greek and Old Slavonic. At St Petersburg University he kept a diary of trivia like the number of tears he shed over a dead friend. It was here that he became an atheist. By the time he graduated from the university, Chernyshevsky developed revolutionary and materialist views. He saw class struggle as the means of society’s forward movement and advocated for the interests of the working people. In his view, the masses were the chief maker of history. He is reputed to have used the phrase “the worse the better”, to indicate that the worse the social conditions became for the poor, the more inclined they would be to launch a revolution. Russian bolshevik Vladimir Ilyich Lenin praised Chernyshevsky: “..he approached all the political events of his times in a revolutionary spirit and was able to exercise a revolutionary influence by advocating, in spite of all the barriers and obstacles placed in his way by the censorship, the idea of a peasant revolution, the idea of the struggle of the masses for the overthrow of all the old authorities”

Short biography of Lajos Rotter Sr. (1901-1983). Lajos Rotter’s interest in aviation became evident in his high school days, when he built elaborate aeromodels and spent his summer vacations in aircraft factories as an apprentice. His high school graduation coincided with the end of the First World War. After the war, he was enrolled in the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of the Technical University of Budapest. During his years at university, he studied broad aspects of aviation using his command of four languages. He was one of the founders of the Sportflying Association (MSrE) of the Technical University in 1921. His first book “Vitorlázórepülés” (Gliding) was published by the Hungarian Aero Association. When the Aviation Department of the Ministry of Transport invited designs for gliders in 1922 to a design competition, Rotter presented a design together with a fellow student István Ágotay. The design has been accepted. His professional career more or less followed the pattern of the pre-war years, but after 1956 he was denied industrial posts. Between 1949 and 1952 he was technical director of the Hungarian aircraft repair shop Székesfehérvár. He was an acclaimed lecturer at the Technical University of Budapest in the field of precision engineering. He kept in touch with gliding and was active in several organizations promoting gliding: Hungarian Aviation Association, Aircraft Section of the Scientific Association for Mechanical Engineering, Association for Transport Sciences, Transport Museum, to name a few. After 1960, he occasionally flew in gliders abroad, but this activity of his was interrupted by a stroke that left him paralyzed. He died in 1983.

Deng Xiaoping (1904-1997) was a Chinese politician who was the paramount leader of the People’s Republic of China from 1978 until 1989. After Chairman Mao Zedong’s death in 1976, Deng gradually rose to power and led China through a series of far-reaching market-economy reforms, which earned him the reputation as the “Architect of Modern China”.
Deng studied and worked in France in the 1920s, where he became a follower of Marxism–Leninism. He joined the Communist Party of China in 1923. Upon returning to China, Deng joined the party organization in Shanghai, becoming a political commissar for the Red Army in rural regions. In 1931, he was demoted within the party due to his support of Mao Zedong, but was promoted again during the 1935 Zunyi Conference. By the late 1930s,
Deng was considered a “revolutionary veteran” because he participated in the Long March. Following the founding of the People’s Republic of China in 1949, Deng worked in Tibet as well as in southwest China to consolidate Communist control. As the party’s Secretary-general in the 1950s, Deng presided over the Anti-Rightist Campaign launched by Mao and became instrumental in China’s economic reconstruction following the Great Leap Forward (1958–1960). However, his economic policies caused him to fall out of favor with Mao Zedong and he was purged twice during the Cultural Revolution.
Unique propagandaworld watch with the image of Laika. Beautiful and in good working order. This watch is only available on Propagandaworld.
Laika was a Soviet space dog who became the first animal in space, and the first animal to orbit the Earth. Laika, a stray mongrel from the streets of Moscow, was selected to be the occupant of the Soviet spacecraft Sputnik 2 that was launched into outer space in 1957. Soviet scientists chose to use Moscow straydogs since they assumed that such animals had already learned to endure conditions of extreme cold and hunger.
Little was known about the impact of spaceflight on living creatures at the time of Laika’s mission. Some scientists believed humans would be unable to survive the launch or the conditions of outer space, so engineers viewed flights by animals as a necessary precursor to human missions. The experiment aimed to prove that a living passenger could survive being launched into orbit paving the way for human spaceflight and providing scientists with some of the first data on how living organisms react to spaceflight environments.
