    Nazi poster on the need to destroy the US-Jewish conspiracy to rule the world


    Brief Narrative
    The Nazis used propaganda to buttress public support for the war effort, shape public opinion, and reinforce antisemitic ideas. As part of their propaganda campaign, the Nazis created the Word of the Week Series of posters (also referred to as Wandzeitung, or wall newspapers), the first of which was distributed on March 16, 1936. Each week, approximately 125,000 posters were strategically placed in public places and businesses such as: market squares, metro stations, bus stops, payroll offices, hospital waiting rooms, factory cafeterias, schools, hotels, restaurants, post offices, train stations, and street kiosks so that they would be viewed by as many people as possible. Posters were the primary medium for the series, but smaller pamphlets were also produced, which could be plastered on the back of correspondence. The posters used colorful, often derogatory caricatures, and photorealistic images with vibrant language to target the Nazis’ early political adversaries, Jews, Communists, and Germany’s enemies during the war. The series was discontinued in 1943.

    front, top, black ink : Ein weitblickender Engländer / sah im Jahre 1909, also vor 33 Jahren, die Entwicklung der Ver- / einigten Staaten voraus, als er diese Zeichnung veröffentlichte. [A far-sighted Englishman in 1909, some 33 years ago, was looking ahead at the development of the United States, when he published this drawing.]
    front, right top, black ink : Viel früher schon, nämlich im Jahre 1885, ent- / schlüpfte dem bekannten jüdischen Historiker / Heinrich Graetz in einem Vortrag in London / folgendes bemerkenswerte Geständnis : / ...Das jüdische Volk wird einst in / Amerika, in dem Lande der Frei- / heit und Gleichheit, aufblühen. / Ein großes, mächtiges Judentum / wird entstehen im 20. Jahrhundert." [The following remarkable confession escaped much earlier, namely in 1885, from the famous Jewish historian Heinrich Graetz: Once in America, the land of Freedom and Equality, the Jewish people will flourish. A large, powerful Jewry will be built in the 20th Century.]
    front, right center and bottom, black ink : Genau so ist es gekommen! / In den Vereinigten Staaten haben die Juden / ihr Ziel erreicht. Juden und Judengenossen / sind die wahren Herren in USA. Sie haben / das amerikanische Volk in den Krieg / getrieben, um ihre Macht jetzt auch über / Europa und die übrige Welt auszudehnen. / Dagegen setzen wir uns zur Wehr! / Wir werden die Waffen nicht eher niederlegen, bis das Judentum und seine / Helfershelfer zu Boden geschlagen und sein Einfluß endgültig vernichtet ist. / Mit der Herrschaft des Judentums wird Schluß gemacht! [So it has happened exactly! In the United States, the Jews have achieved their objective. Both the Jews and the recently converted are the real Masters in the USA. They have driven the American people to War, in order to now extend their power over Europe and the rest of the World as well. However, we will defend ourselves! / We shall not lay down our arms, until the Jews and their accomplices are struck down and their influence is permanently destroyed. The end of the Jew’s reign has come!]
