Poster of John Bull and Stalin joining the Jewish conspiracy

Object | Accession Number: 2016.184.420

Nazi propaganda poster with the floating head of a sinister, caricatured Jew as the puppet master for international Jewry, watching two cartoonlike figures, John Bull, for England, and Stalin for the Soviet Union, shaking hands over a map of Europe. In June 1941, Nazi Germany launched a surprise attack on their ally, the Soviet Union. This broke the pact entered with the Soviets in 1939, which Hitler saw as a temporary measure to aid the invasion of Poland. Since the 1920s, Hitler had denounced the Soviet Union as a stronghold of the Jewish Bolshevik conspiracy which threatened Germany's safety and the plan to attack the USSR was underway in 1940. The German attack led to an alliance between the Soviet Union and Great Britain, as well as the United States, countries already at war with Germany. This poster is one of more than 900 items in the Katz Ehrenthal Collection of antisemitic visual materials.
