Anti-Jewish and anti-Allied forces Nazi propaganda leaflet acquired by Charles E. Pugh while he served as a United States paratrooper in France during World War II. These leaflets were dropped from planes over Paris in late 1943, as part of a German propaganda campaign to raise suspicions against the United States and its part in the worldwide Jewish conspiracy which threatened the safety of France and all of Europe. The streets would appear to be littered with real dollar bills. Then, after picking one up, a person would discover that it was fake and see the information detailing how Jews have manipulated the US and controlled its currency to support the Jewish threat and wage the Jewish war.
