    The Katz Ehrenthal Collection is a collection of more than 900 objects depicting Jews and antisemitic and anti-Jewish propaganda from the medieval to the modern era, in Europe, Russia, and the United States. The collection was amassed by Peter Ehrenthal, a Romanian Holocaust survivor, to document the pervasive history of anti-Jewish hatred in Western art, politics and popular culture. It includes crude folk art as well as pieces created by Europe's finest craftsmen, prints and periodical illustrations, posters, paintings, decorative art, and toys and everyday household items decorated with depictions of stereotypical Jewish figures.

    Physical Details

    Physical Description
    Color print with 6 vignettes, 3 at the top and 3 at the bottom, with contrasting depictions of a monk, a soldier, and a Jewish man. In the top left, the monk is thin, wears a plain blue robe with a simple cross and no shoes, and kneels at an altar in prayer. In the bottom left, he is fat, wears a red striped robe with 2 large, gold crosses and sandals, and sits, smiling, at a table while a woman serves him a large meal. In the top center the soldier, in a red and blue military uniform with a bearskin hat, holds up a sword and lunges toward a dummy as a woman, a boy, and 2 soldiers watch. In the bottom center, the bearskin hat is missing and he flees, empty hands above his head, from a soldier in a green uniform who jabs a bayonet at him. In the top right, the Jewish man frowns and holds up 1 hand as he walks away from a table where a diner looks at him and holds up a piece of pork. He wears a green coat and has hooded eyes, a large nose, and a long beard. In the bottom right, he sits at a table in an empty room, smiles, and holds a knife and fork over a large serving of pork. Captions are printed above, between, and below the vignettes.
