The most frequent themes for postcards that were supposed to raise the spirit of Soviet soldiers were the images of raped and killed women with children who cry near them; images of female prisoners; children behind barbed wire who beg for help. These images were intended not only to inspire the continuation of the war to a victorious end, but to serve as motivators for each Red Army in the fight against the enemy.
