Publication | Accession Number: 2016.184.274.8

Issue of Lustige Blätter, a weekly German humor magazine. The cover has a caricature of a Jewish banker wading through a sea of blood up to his knees, with floating heads by Erik, with the caption, Kriegstreiber Baruch, Roosevelts Freund. 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.
