Souvenir coin with a swastika and Star of David

Object | Accession Number: 2017.210.1

Promotional coin issued by the nationalist German newspaper, Der Angriff. The coin was struck in 1934 to memorialize the journey of Baron von Mildenstein, a Nazi party member, to Palestine. The trip resulted in a pro-Zionist report encouraging Jewish emigration to Palestine and elsewhere, published in Der Angriff. It is embossed with the text, Ein Nazi fahrt nach Palastina, [A Nazi goes to Palestine] which is also the title of a book published by the Nazi Party in 1934.
