Zeitschrift fur Rassenkunde und die gesamte Forschung am Menschen

Object | Accession Number: 2016.184.682

Zeitschrift fur Rassenkunde, an academic journal of racial studies, published in Nazi Germany, edited by Egon Freiherr von Eickstedt (1892-1965.) Eickstedt, an anthropologist and racial scientist, proposed an influential theory of racial classification, based on his belief that there were progressive and primitive races. He was a professor at Breslau, and a Nazi Party sympathizer, though not a member, but only because his application was denied. This journal is one of more than 900 items in the Katz Ehrenthal Collection of antisemitic visual materials.
