    Brief Narrative
    Broadside providing notice in German and Polish of a meat rationing order issued in Nowy Sacz, called Neu-Sandez, in 1940 in German occupied Poland. Aryans were allotted 9 ounces, a little over half a pound, of meat per week, and Jews less than 2 ounces, about an eighth of a pound. Nowy Sacz was occupied by Nazi Germany on September 6, 1939. Food shortages were experienced immediately. Jews were abused, forced to perform work for no pay, and confined to a ghetto. The city was near the Slovakian border and, in December, Jews in that area were ordered to move into the city. Food was even scarcer, and with the overcrowding came starvation and fast spreading disease. In August 1942, the ghetto was liquidated and approximately 20,000 Jewish residents were sent to Belzec killing center. This poster is one of more than 900 items in the Katz Ehrenthal Collection of antisemitic visual materials.

    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.
