Book of antisemitic poems, stories, and parables

Publication | Accession Number: 2016.184.581 a-b

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.
