Poster of a giant caricatured Jewish man holding businessmen in a noose

Object | Accession Number: 2007.351.1

Anti-Jewish poster issued in German occupied Serbia in the fall of 1941 for the Grand Anti-Masonic Exhibition in Belgrade from October 22, 1941, to January 19, 1942. It depicts a grotesque caricature of an oversized Jewish man pulling a rope around the necks of six men in business clothes to show the ways Jews manipulate financial markets and have a stranglehold on business. 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.
