Poster of a Jewish publisher bursting from the New York Times

Object | Accession Number: 2016.184.346

Antisemitic propaganda poster issued in German occupied Serbia in the fall of 1941 for the Grand Anti-Masonic Exhibition held in Belgrade from October 22, 1941, to January 19, 1942. It depicts Arthur Hays Sulzberger, the Jewish publisher of the New York Times from 1935-1961, breaking through the front page of the newspaper. The poster denounces the hidden Jewish influence that corrupts the news. This is ironic as Sulzberger as editor is now viewed as having downplayed the antisemitism of Nazi Germany and the Holocaust that destroyed European Jewry. The exhibit focused on the alleged Jewish-Communist-Masonic conspiracy to achieve world domination. Jews were portrayed as the source of all evil, which had to be destroyed, along with Jewish controlled countries, such as the Soviet Union and the US, and any outsider groups that opposed Nazi Germany. Yugoslavia was invaded and dismembered by the Axis powers in April 1941. Germany annexed most of Slovenia and placed Serbia under military occupation. The exhibition was organized by the Serbian puppet government of Milan Nedic in collaboration with the German occupiers. This poster is one of more than 900 items in the Katz Ehrenthal Collection of antisemitic visual materials.
