These cards were produced by the Hannoversche Druck- und Verlagsgesellschaft as a propaganda pack of the German Social Democratic Party (SPD) for the federal elections in 1953. The SPD was in the opposition then. The name of the maker is on the Ace of Hearts. The pack has been designed by Wolf Strobel.
The Kings and Jacks show leading members of the governing parties, and the Queens are allegories for these parties. They are characterized by aggressive verses. The pip cards show small scenes attacking the political aims of the government.
