    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
    Postcard with a black and white cartoon of a small, bald man with a big nose and fleshy lips standing on the left wearing a suit and a Star of David. He is clasping his hands expectantly and looking up at Germania, a giant woman standing in the center wearing Grecian style robes. She is bound by ropes, her wrists shackled and her chin tilted up proudly, a broken sword and jeweled crown at her feet. Standing on the right, a small, bearded man with sidelocks and a large nose is wearing ill-fitting clothing and dropping coins into a bulging pouch. On the back, there is German text above 4 blank lines. It is adhered to cardstock.
