    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.

    Physical Description
    Offset color lithograph poster on paper with a black background with a large caricatures of a disreputable looking middle aged Jewish man with a yellow outlined Star of David filling the top half.

His dark unibrow is raised in a pointed arch above his big nose and his thick, fleshy lips are parted in an insolent grin. He has dark, wavy short sidelocks, a thin mustache, and a short, scraggly beard. His large, thick flapped ears stick out beyond his short brimmed cap. The lower half of the poster has 3 columns of Ukrainian text in white ink. There are narrow white panels at the top and bottom with red text. The poster is adhered to slightly larger linen backing.
