Satirical news cartoon of a pear headed Frenchman expressing pity for "these poor Jews", while behind him a caricature of a Jewish man in a tallit with an evil looking face is burning a globe with a stack of currency. The use of a pear-shaped head to insult and make fun of authority figures became a staple of French satire after Daumier used it ot lampoon the King in 1942. This cartoon is one of more than 900 items in the Katz Ehrenthal Collection of antisemitic visual materials.
