    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.

    Physical Description
    Engraving in black ink on paper depicting a crowd of nobles standing on the right behind the prince, a man wearing an elaborate, fur-trimmed robe, in the throne room. He is flanked by a man leaning on empty crates and woman holding jewels beside men counting money. His right hand points at a collection of valuable, decorative objects on the floor before him as he meets the upward gaze of a turbaned man crouched opposite him. The man reaches toward an object and cradles a money pouch. He and the group standing behind him wear richly patterned clothing and have stereotypically Jewish features: thick eyebrows, hooded eyes, pointed noses, and fleshy lips. Several of them, including one woman, stare at the wealth before them, while others converse or look across the room. The title and a caption are printed below in Dutch.
