Satiric print of Jewish men orchestrating the war

Object | Accession Number: 2016.184.376

Reprint of an illustration, Nervous Warriors, from a pro-Nazi Party magazine, Kladderadatsch, of caricatured Jewish men waging war with a minefield of chamberpots and weapons consisting of newspapers and musical instruments. It was published in a 1944 issue of Kladderadatsch, an illustrated satirical magazine issued in Berlin, Germany, from 1848-1944. The magazine was a popular success with the middle class from the start, and like its audience, grew more conservative over the years. Under editor Paul Warncke (1909-1933), it was strongly nationalistic, praising Hitler for his patriotism after the 1923 Munich Putsch. It grew increasingly antisemitic, and was an energetic supporter of Hitler and the Nazi Party. This print is one of more than 900 items in the Katz Ehrenthal Collection of antisemitic visual materials.
