Hoax or Fact:

Fact.

Analysis:

The Soviets and the rest of the allies were in fact faking hundreds of pictures during and after the World war, as a part of psychological warfare against the German people and propagandize their own people.

However, in later years, with the user of computers and the internet, the usage of those hundreds of images were proved to be faked during and after World War Two, which also intended to demonize Hitler and the NSDAP (Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei). Shown in the Image Gallery are some of those faked pictures, along with the right and wrong description. Viewers are warned some pictures are disturbing.

Operation Cornflakes

Operation Cornflakes was a World War II Office of Strategic Services (OSS, i.e. United States intelligence agency formed during World War II) PSYOP (psychological operations) mission in 1944 and 1945 that involved tricking the German postal service Deutsche Reichspost into inadvertently delivering anti-Nazi propaganda to the German citizens via mail.

The operation Cornflakes involved special planes of the Allies that were instructed to airdrop bags of false, but properly addressed mail in the vicinity of bombed mail trains. This is because, when the mail is recovered during the clean-up of the wreck, the postal service would confuse the false mail for the real ones and deliver them to the various addresses. During the operation, the OSS also forged 6 and 12 pfennig postal stamps, which also included spoof ones with Hitler's exposed skull, intended to deliver the letters sent across Germany.
