Antisemitic poster of a Jewish businessman plotting against Germany

Object | Accession Number: 1990.193.9

Anti-Jewish poster that was displayed in the Grand Anti-Masonic Exhibition in Belgrade, Yugoslavia (Serbia), from October 22, 1941, to January 19, 1942. It depicts a Jewish businessman engaged in a conspiracy with Great Britain, the Soviet Union, and the United States to provoke war against Germany. The poster was printed in several languages and distributed in the occupied countries to promote the idea that Jews were manipulating the Allied Powers. See 2009.213.4 for a French version. The exhibit focused on the alleged Jewish-Communist-Masonic conspiracy to achieve world domination with the intent to increase hatred against outsider groups that opposed Nazi Germany. Yugoslavia had been invaded and dismembered by the Axis powers in April 1941. Germany annexed most of Slovenia and placed Serbia under military occupation. The exhibition was organized by the Serbian puppet government in collaboration with the German occupiers.
