The title of this book in English is "Why Adolf Hitler has not become an Artist." Each of the contributing artists/poets answers this question with one or more drawings or poems. For example, Olbrich writes a sentence,"? -- It's a true story." Garnier provides three ink drawings of caricatures of Hitler that focus on his prominent facial features, his moustache and hair swept to one side. They are captioned, espressionismus, Hil Heitler, and entartete Kunst.
