    Cylinder recording


    Brief Narrative
    Edison wax cylinder recording of the vaudeville song, "When Moshe with his nose leads the band ...." When the sheet music was published, the title was changed to, "When Mose with his nose leads the band ...", presumably to give it wider appeal and make it less offensive. The wax cylinder is one of more than 900 items in the Katz Ehrenthal Collection of antisemitic artifacts and visual materials.

    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.
