The great giant is Leon Trotsky. But this is NOT a soviet poster, it is an anti-communist, anti-semitic poster demonizing Trotsky, who was a "Russified" Jew. I urge you to correct your description.

Can either Adam, the faithful reader from San Francisco or Monsieur Putz tell me why the giant red apelike naked man, aka: Trotsky, the "Russified" Jew was drawn wearing a 5 points star instead of the Hexagram 6 points Star of David???
