Black and cream ceramic beer stein with Jewish usurers tormenting a German farmer

Object | Accession Number: 2016.184.536

Black and cream ceramic beer stein embossed with an antisemitic scene of Jewish money lenders harassing a German farmer. Steins with anti-Jewish images were very popular in late 19th century Germany. The constitution of the newly unified Germany, adopted in 1871, emancipated all Jews. The following decades saw a surge in anti-semitism. It was more vicious and openly expressed, and became a popular cause for several political parties. This beer stein is one of more than 900 items in the Katz Ehrenthal Collection of antisemitic visual materials.
