Cole Dwayer 2007 p 38 '''Sir David Alexander Cecil Low''' (7 April 1891 – 19 September 1963) was a New Zealand political cartoonist and caricaturist who lived and worked in the United Kingdom for many years. Low was a self-taught cartoonist. Born in New Zealand, he worked in his native country before migrating to Sydney, Australia in 1911, and ultimately to London (1919), where he made his career and earned fame for his Colonel Blimp depictions and his merciless satirising (satire) the personalities and policies of German (Nazi Germany) dictator Adolf Hitler, Italian (Kingdom of Italy (1861-1946)) dictator Benito Mussolini, Soviet (Soviet Union) dictator Joseph Stalin, and other leaders of his times. His works are featured in many British history textbooks. One of Low's most famous cartoons, ''Rendezvous'', was first published in the ''Evening Standard'' on 20 September 1939. It satirises the cynicism which lay at the heart of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact, depicting Hitler and Soviet (Soviet Union) dictator Joseph Stalin bowing politely before each other after their joint invasion of Poland (Invasion of Poland (1939)), but nevertheless greeting each other respectively as "the scum of the earth" and "the bloody assassin of the workers". On 1 September, the Germans invaded Poland (Second Polish Republic) from the west and, on 17 September, the Soviets invaded from the east (Soviet invasion of Poland). After the Russian Revolution (Russian Revolution of 1917), their culture suffered due to Soviet collectivisation policy. The government of the Soviet Union tried to force the nomadic Samoyeds to become sedentary. They were forced to settle in villages and their children were educated in state boarding schools, which resulted in erosion of their cultural identity. Many, especially in the Nenets Autonomous Okrug lost their mother tongue and became assimilated. Since the 1930s, a few Nenets have come to express themselves through professionalized cultural media. For instance, Tyko Vylka and Konstantin Pankov became well-known painters. Anna Nerkagi is one of the most celebrated Nenets writers. Yuri Vella, though living as a reindeer herder, has become the first writer in the Forest (Forest Nenets language). After the 1917 Revolution and the rise of the Soviet Union, and particularly under the leadership of Joseph Stalin, conditions for the remaining Germans in Russia declined considerably. The rise of Nazi Germany, with its concern about ethnic Germans in other lands and proselytizing the German ''volk'', led to suspicions of any German within Russia. In 1932-33 Soviet authorities forced starvation among the Volga Germans, seizing their food while claiming a famine in the rest of the Soviet Union, and ordering the breakup of many German villages. Koch, Fred C. (1977). ''The Volga Germans: In Russia and the Americas, from 1763 to the Present'', pp. 281-82. The Pennsylvania State University. Since the reunification of Germany after the fall of the Berlin Wall and declining conditions in Russia, many ethnic Germans still living in the lands of the former Soviet Union sought German repatriation. The second Red Scare occurred after World War II (1939–45), and was popularly known as "McCarthyism" after its most famous supporter and namesake, Senator (US Senate) Joseph McCarthy. McCarthyism coincided with increased popular fear of communist espionage consequent to a Soviet (Soviet Union) Eastern Europe, the Berlin Blockade (1948–49), the Chinese Civil War, the confessions of spying for the Soviet Union given by several high-ranking U.S. government officials, and the Korean War. Internal causes of anti-communist fear The events of the late 1940s—the trial of Ethel and Julius Rosenberg, the Iron Curtain (1945–1991) around Eastern Europe, and the Soviet Union’s nuclear weapon—surprised the American public, influencing popular opinion about U.S. national security, that, in turn, connected to fear of the Soviet Union hydrogen-bombing the United States, and fear of the Communist Party of the United States of America (CPUSA) (CPUSA). In Canada, the 1946 Kellock-Taschereau Commission investigated espionage after top secret documents concerning RDX, radar and other weapons were handed over to the Soviets by a domestic spy-ring.
