Blue, green, and brown beer stein with images of the expulsion of the Jews

Object | Accession Number: 2016.184.628

Blue, brown, and black ceramic beer stein with antisemitic scenes depicting Jews being expelled from Germany and back to their kosher nation. Steins with anti-Jewish images were very popular in late 19th century Germany. The constitution of the newly unified Germany, adopted in 1871, emancipated all Jews. The following decades saw a surge in anti-semitism. It was more vicious and openly expressed, and became a popular cause for several political parties. This beer stein is one of more than 900 items in the Katz Ehrenthal Collection of antisemitic visual materials.
