Text only flier advertising the sale of three antisemitic books

Object | Accession Number: 2010.289.1

Text only circular advertising three antisemitic books published by Hammer-Verlag in Leipzig, Germany, in 1936: “Guidebook for the Jewish Question” by Theodor Fritsch, “The International Jew” by Henry Ford, and “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.” It has an excerpt from a November 28, 1930, letter from Hitler to Fritsch that describes Fritsch’s book as essential for the Nazi movement. The publishing house, Hammer-Verlag, was founded by Fritsch (1852-1933) in Leipzig in 1902. His son, also Theodor Fritsch (1895-1946), was a bookseller and Nazi Party member. He inherited the publishing house in 1933 after his father’s death. It was in existence until 1940. Fritsch was interned in a prisoner of war camp postwar; he died there in 1946.
