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.

    Physical Description
    Detailed, color print of many men in long, winter coats, hats, and gloves playing with a ball in a snowy Jewish market. They are pushing and pulling on each other as they look up at the ball or down at a man on the ground. To their right, a dog leaps in the air. They are tightly grouped within the open space between small wooden shops selling colorful objects. Four spectators stand in the shops to either side: a woman in a red headscarf and a man on the left, and a woman behind a bearded man on the right. In front of the second shop, a woman in a brown headscarf and 3 boys look at an object stuck on the awning. In the background, the silhouettes of onion domes are visible above a long building. The title is printed along the bottom. It is attached to a slightly larger paper backer.
