Dit is Jodewin. Jozef Delano Winston Roddel.
On the initiative of well-known radio propagandist Max Blokzijl, "Jodewin" was first introduced in propaganda in August 1943. His name was derived from the first names of the three allied war leaders Joseph Stalin, Delano Roosevelt and Winston Churchill. This figure was used to combat the constant stream of rumours.
The national-socialist propagandists responded to the corresponding poster with elation: "One reaches the conclusion that the drawing can be considered good in every respect, only the balloon's orange colour should stand out more. One is in agreement about the fact that curiosity should first be cultivated for this image. We will have to find the material based on rumours and gossip." There was great disappointment when it turned out that the population completely failed to understand the campaign.
