Sketchbook by Fips of daily prison life created while jailed as a Nazi propagandist

Object | Accession Number: 2006.199.1

Sketches created in 1945 by Philipp Rupprecht, pen name Fips, while a prisoner-of-war in the 7th Army Internee Camp #74, in Ludwigsburg, Germany. In late 1945, he presented the notebook to Army Provost Marshal William Gustin. From 1923-1945, Rupprecht was a well known antisemitic caricaturist for the viciously anti-Jewish newspaper, Der Stuermer, published by Julius Streicher. Rupprecht was arrested by the US Army in 1945, tried by a German denazification court, and sentenced to six years hard labor.
