Advertisment for Der Sturmer, the vicious anti-Jewish newspaper

Object | Accession Number: 2016.184.455

Advertising sheet for Der Stürmer, a viciously anti-Jewish newspaper published by Julius Streicher, an early Nazi Party member, from 1923-1945 in Germany. The hadnbill features a cartoon of a stereotypical "livestock Jew" with a big nose, hooded eyes, and fleshy lips by Fips. It uses one of the newspaper's slogans: "Without a solution to the Jewish question, there is no salvation for mankind!" to attract customers. In closing, it promotes the paper as a way to learn about Jewish racial laws, and that, per the paper's main slogan: the Jews are our misfortune. Der Stürmer thrived on scandal, and preferred sensational stories of Jews committing disgusting, evil acts. It was also infamous for its antisemitic cartoons. 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 incitement to murder and a crime against humanity. The handbill is one of the more than 900 items in the Katz Ehrenthal Collection of antisemitic artifacts and visual materials.
