    Brief Narrative
    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.

    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.
