Magazine cover with a caricature of Orthodox Jews in a field of rabbits

Object | Accession Number: 2016.184.414

Illustrated cover of the satirical magazine, Simplicissimus, year 7, No. 26, September 23, 1902. The cover headline, Polonisierung Weispreussens [The Polonization of Western Prussia] is illustrated with a caricature of three old Orthodox Jewish men quarreling in a landscape overrun with rabbits. The image plays upon reactionary fears of the mass immigration of East European Jews into Prussia in the early 20th century. This journal is one of more than 900 items in the Katz Ehrenthal Collection of antisemitic visual materials.
