Anti-Jewish poster issued in German occupied Serbia in the fall of 1941 for the Grand Anti-Masonic Exhibition in Belgrade from October 22, 1941, to January 19, 1942. The poster was printed in several languages and distributed in the occupied countries to promote the idea that Jews were manipulating the Allied Powers. In April, 1941, Yugoslavia was invaded by Germany and its allies. The country quickly capitulated and was dismembered by the Axis powers. Germany annexed most of Slovenia and placed Serbia under military occupation. The Grand Anti-Masonic Exhibition was organized by the Serbian puppet government in collaboration with the German occupiers. The exhibition featured propaganda material distributed to the public, including 60,000 copies of twenty different posters, and propaganda films that had previously been seen during “The Eternal Jew” exhibitions in Munich and Vienna in 1937. The organizers claimed the exhibition was anti-Masonic, but the true purpose was to promote antisemitism, dehumanize Jews, and justify their extermination. Henry Morgenthau Jr. was the United States Secretary of the Treasury from 1934-1945. Morgenthau, who was Jewish, was a frequent target of Nazi propaganda. His high ranking position was used as proof for the antisemitic conspiracy theory that Jews controlled Western governments. This poster is one of more than 900 items in the Katz Ehrenthal Collection of antisemitic visual materials.
