The illustrator uses Symbolism. The grim reaper symbolizes the death rate that is chasing after the baby carriage symbolizing birth rates in Germany. Furthermore, he also labels the baby carriage as German Birth Rate.


This political cartoon is about the inability of Germany to keep its birth rate up and its mortality rate down, which Herblock believes, will then stabilize its population. Another opinion could be that instead of fleeing from the death rate, the Germans need to try and stop it from increasing so rapidly. This cartoon is persuasive because it appeals to your emotions by scaring you. The author could have incorporated irony in order to make it more satirical.
