Denmark

A chemist in neutral Denmark conducts research on culture, looking for it under a microscope. A German pickelhaube sits on his desk, and a German fetus or infant wearing one is preserved in a glass jar before him. Over his shoulder is a map of the kingdom of Denmark, the province of Schleswig immediately to its south, lost to Germany in 1864 in the Second Schleswig.  One of a series of 1916 postcards on neutral nations by Em. Dupuis.
