Studien zur Syntax und Semantik deutscher Modalpartikeln

Abstract

Two German informational books addressed to children, namely “Die Kartoffelkäferfibel” (1935) and “Karl Kahlfraß und sein Lieschen” (1952) are ana­lysed. While they contain useful information about the Colorado beetle - that threatened the population’s food security in the post-war periods - and its control, they also display propaganda directed against the French and the US American people insofar as it is suggested on a pictorial and metaphorical level that the Colorado beetles are foreign invaders or immigrants. This suggestion works in a humorous fashion, possibly being appealing to the targeted audience.
