Anti-Nazi drawing published in the PM newspaper

Object | Accession Number: 1991.182.5

This one I did in America in 1935, with bitterness and a heavy heart. This man was my friend. He was Berthold Jacob, a Berlin newspaper man who hated Hitlerism, and said and wrote so. He was kidnapped from his hotel in Basel, Switzerland, beaten and dragged across the border. He testified at the kidnapper's trial in Switzerland. For a while Jacob was in a prison camp. What happened to him after that, I don't know.
