Anti-Jewish, anti-Allies poster of Churchill and FDR on a Jewish controlled seesaw

Object | Accession Number: 2016.184.347

Antisemitic propaganda poster issued in German occupied Serbia in the fall of 1941. It portrays Franklin D. Roosevelt and Winston Churchill sitting on a seesaw balanced on a globe, controlled by a caricatured Orthodox Jew. The poster was created for the Grand Anti-Masonic Exhibition held in Belgrade from October 22, 1941, to January 19, 1942. 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.
