Publication | Accession Number: 2016.184.274.6

Issue of Lustige Blätter, a weekly illustrated German humor magazine. The cover has a caricature by Will Halle of a Jewish peasant emptying a barrel titled Agitation, against a backdrop of the US flag, with the caption: Gut gedngt , "Donnerwtter das wird aber eine Ernte geben." The magazine began publication in 1885, but adapted its humor for changing public tastes. During the Nazi era, it frequently featured antisemitic cartoons, and illustrations making fun of enemies of Germany, such as Churchill and Roosevelt. The magazine is one of more than 900 items in the Katz Ehrenthal Collection of antisemitic artifacts and visual materials.
