Flyer from newspaper De Waarheid for recruting new subscribers. The flyer is from around 1980.
De Waarheid was a Dutch newspaper of communist signature. The magazine started in 1940 during the German occupation as a resistance newspaper. The first issue was published in November 1940 and later the magazine became one of the most important illegal magazines of the occupation.
After the Liberation, the newspaper continued as a daily newspaper. Although it also brought general news, it was also the party magazine of the Communist Party of the Netherlands (CPN), making it comparable to Pravda, the mouthpiece of the communist party in the Soviet Union (whose name also means truth). For some time, De Waarheid was the largest daily newspaper in the Netherlands, but during the Cold War its circulation dropped significantly to less than ten thousand. In 1990 the newspaper was closed.
