French print depicting the health benefits of kosher butchering

Object | Accession Number: 2016.184.431

Rotogravure print, Aux Abattoirs [At the Slaughterhouse] showing elegantly dressed French women and gendarmes "drinking the blood of freshly slaughtered animals. It seems that the French gentle folk liked to drink fresh kosher blood at the Kosher slaughter house - this being considered more sanitary." This is an unusual example of a popular print depicting Jewish customs, such as kosher butchering methods, in a positive way and as a something good for all people, not just a Jewish aberration. This print is one of more than 900 items in the Katz Ehrenthal Collection of antisemitic visual materials.
