Arbeiters-Illustrierte Zeitung, or The Workers' Illustrated Newspaper, was an Anti-Fascist, Communist newspaper between 1924 and 1933 in Berlin, then later exiled by the Nazis to Prague until about 1938. First published as Sichel und Hammer, and later as simply A-I-Z, it featured quite striking photographs. It covered global events relating to the Worker's plight, as well as fiction, poetry, satire, and sports. AIZ's covers famously featured the political photomontages of John Heartfield.
