Advertisement for the vicious anti-Jewish newspaper Der Stuermer

Object | Accession Number: 2016.184.435

Illustrated advertising handbill, Wenn Juden Lachen [When Jews Laugh] for Der Stürmer, the viciously anti-Jewish newspaper published by Julius Streicher from 1923-1945 in Nuremberg. It features several, unflattering black and white photos of Jewish men and one woman, with a caption identifying them as born criminals. After the war ended, Streicher was arrested by the US Army in May 1945. He was tried by the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg, convicted, and executed per the ruling that his repeated articles calling for the annihilation of the Jewish race were a direct indictment to murder and a crime against humanity. The flier is one of the more than 900 items in the Katz Ehrenthal Collection of antisemitic artifacts and visual materials.
