    Brief Narrative
    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.

    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.
