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

Object | Accession Number: 2016.184.548

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.
