    Overview

    Brief Narrative
    Antisemitic, anti-Allies Nazi propaganda poster issued in German occupied Netherlands showing a Jewish businessman dressed in clothing with symbols of America, Great Britain, and the Soviet Union being chased away by a local worker and German soldier. In May 1940, Germany invaded and occupied the Netherlands, setting up a civil administration supervised by the SS. In June 1941, Germany broke its pact with the Soviet Union and launched an invasion into Russia. On December 7, 1941, Japan attacked Pearl Harbor. Since Germany had a mutual assistance pact with Japan, they declared war against the US four days later. Germany produced war propaganda in the language of the countries they occupied to convince the local populations of the threat posed by the Allies and the need to support the war effort. In this piece, they claim that the Allies are tools of the long standing Jewish conspiracy to dominate the world through their control of international finance. The handbill is one of the more than 900 items in the Katz Ehrenthal Collection of antisemitic artifacts and visual materials.

    Biography
    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. The collection was amassed by Peter Ehrenthal, a Romanian Holocaust survivor, to document the pervasive history of anti-Jewish hatred in Western art, politics and popular culture. It includes crude folk art as well as pieces created by Europe's finest craftsmen, prints and periodical illustrations, posters, paintings, decorative art, and toys and everyday household items decorated with depictions of stereotypical Jewish figures.
