There was a Great Exhibition in Dusseldorf in 1926 for health care, physical care and social care called Gesolei for short -- the way Germans get around those agglutinative jawbreakers when they don't have all week. This short animated film was a commercial that Ruttmann and other experimental film makers working with him came up with for publicity.

I don't know how effective it was among the population. I do know that I had to look up "Gesolei" on Wikipedia to figure it out. Considering the images, without the context, it seemed to offer the thought that there was a lot of blood shed during the First World War; now a lot of sports were being played by people with artificial hands and legs. Gesolei! I suppose if you knew about it, it would remind you of the Exhibition.
