Nazi handbill of Roosevelt, Churchill, and Stalin controlled by Jewish piper

Object | Accession Number: 2016.184.197

Antisemitic, anti-Allies Nazi propaganda handbill issued in German occupied Netherlands showing the leaders of America, England, and the Soviet Union following the tune of a Jewish man playing a pipe. In May 1940, Germany invaded and occupied the Netherlands, setting up a civil administration supervised by the SS. In June 1941, Germany broke its pact with the Soviet Union and launched an invasion into Russia. On December 7, 1941, Japan attacked Pearl Harbor. Since Germany had a mutual assistance pact with Japan, they declared war against the US four days later. Germany produced war propaganda in the language of the countries they occupied to convince the local populations of the threat posed by the Allies and the need to support the war effort. In this piece, they claim that the Allies are tools of the long standing Jewish conspiracy to dominate the world through their control of international finance. The handbill is one of the more than 900 items in the Katz Ehrenthal Collection of antisemitic artifacts and visual materials.
