    Brief Narrative
    Two books bound in one volume of purportedly Jewish parables and tales written by a non-Jewish judge, Holzschuher, under the pseudonym Itzig Feitel Stern. It ridicules Jewish life and is written as a parody. Mostly in German, with some Yiddish or Yiddish transliteration, or some variant. It is designed to be read from right to left (or back to front) as if it were a Hebrew book. This book is one of more than 900 items in the Katz Ehrenthal Collection of antisemitic visual materials.

    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.
