Additional Information: Original 300th year anniversary poster (1634 - 1934) Passion Play Tercentenary Oberammerga, archivally linen backed poster. "Germany Invites You!" Year 1934 was the tricentennial of the Oberammergauer passion vow, which is why a jubilee play was initiated. Whether and how far Oberammergau defends itself against the pocketing by the new politics of Germany, can be proved hardly today. But one thing is sure: The powerful exploited Oberammergau. The advertisement poster for 1934 shows the mountain-surrounded passion village from which a cross rises which is flowed round by light. The posters intended for the foreign country must carry by the will of the imperial propaganda ministry the label ‘Germany calling ’. Year: 1634 At Pentecost, the Oberammergauers first performed the “Play of the Suffering, Death and Resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ” (the first title of the Passion Play) on a stage constructed in the cemetery above the fresh graves of the plague victims. Year: 1934 33rd Passion Play year was the 300th anniversary of the performance. With the addition of special anniversary performances, drastic lowering of admission fees and reduced price railroad tickets, over 440,000 spectators were in attendance. @TheVintagePoster
