Hebrew-Language Map of the Eastern Front, Published in Tel Aviv.

Interesting contemporary Tel Aviv-published map of the Eastern Front, showing roads, railroads, wheat fields, oil, and other important economic centers throughout the western Soviet Union.

The map is signed by Shlomo Cohen, a mapmaker for the Tel-Aviv daily Yedioth Ahronoth. It shows the Soviet borders as of 1941, with a portion of the west shaded more lightly, signifying German advances during Operation Barbarossa.

An interesting depiction of the beginning of the Eastern Front of World War II.
