    Brief Narrative
    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 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.
