    Nazi poster on the need to destroy the US-Jewish conspiracy to rule the world


    Brief Narrative
    Anti-Jewish, anti-American Nazi propaganda poster explaining that Jews are the Master of the United States. They have made the American people go to war to further the Jewish plan to conquer the world. And it is only the German people who can stop them. It reprints a 1909 cartoon showing Uncle Sam pushing a Native American off a cliff, followed by a Jewish man pushing Uncle Sam off the cliff. The poster was issued on August 12, 1942, for the Parole der Woche (Slogan of the Week) series produced by the Nazi Party in Germany from 1936-1943. The series was discontinued in 1943 because of paper shortages caused by the prolonged war. The US declared war on Germany in December 1941. World War II in Europe ended with the surrender of Germany in May 1945. This poster is one of more than 900 items in the Katz Ehrenthal Collection of antisemitic visual materials.

    front, top, black ink : Ein weitblickender Engländer / sah im Jahre 1909, also vor 33 Jahren, die Entwicklung der Ver- / einigten Staaten voraus, als er diese Zeichnung veröffentlichte. [A far-sighted Englishman in 1909, some 33 years ago, was looking ahead at the development of the United States, when he published this drawing.]
    front, right top, black ink : Viel früher schon, nämlich im Jahre 1885, ent- / schlüpfte dem bekannten jüdischen Historiker / Heinrich Graetz in einem Vortrag in London / folgendes bemerkenswerte Geständnis : / ...Das jüdische Volk wird einst in / Amerika, in dem Lande der Frei- / heit und Gleichheit, aufblühen. / Ein großes, mächtiges Judentum / wird entstehen im 20. Jahrhundert." [The following remarkable confession escaped much earlier, namely in 1885, from the famous Jewish historian Heinrich Graetz: at a lecture in London. Once in America, the land of Freedom and Equality, the Jewish people will flourish. A large, powerful Jewry will be built in the 20th Century.]
    front, right center and bottom, black ink : Genau so ist es gekommen! / In den Vereinigten Staaten haben die Juden / ihr Ziel erreicht. Juden und Judengenossen / sind die wahren Herren in USA. Sie haben / das amerikanische Volk in den Krieg / getrieben, um ihre Macht jetzt auch über / Europa und die übrige Welt auszudehnen. / Dagegen setzen wir uns zur Wehr! / Wir werden die Waffen nicht eher niederlegen, bis das Judentum und seine / Helfershelfer zu Boden geschlagen und sein Einfluß endgültig vernichtet ist. / Mit der Herrschaft des Judentums wird Schluß gemacht! [So it has happened exactly! In the United States, the Jews have achieved their objective. Both the Jews and the recently converted are the real Masters in the USA. They have driven the American people to War, in order to now extend their power over Europe and the rest of the World as well. However, we will defend ourselves! / We shall not lay down our arms, until the Jews and their accomplices are struck down and their influence is permanently destroyed. The end of the Jew’s reign has come!]

    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.
