US anti-Nazi Germany boycott poster stamp with a monstrous figure

Object | Accession Number: 2017.227.3

Poster stamp depicting the Germanic god, Donar, issued and distributed in the late 1930s by the Joint Boycott Council (JBC). Although they were not valid for postage, poster stamps could be affixed to letters and envelopes as fund-raising, propaganda, and educational tools. The Joint Boycott Council of the American Jewish Congress and Jewish Labor Committee was a partnership formed in 1936, chaired by Dr. Joseph Tenenbaum. The Council served as a coordination effort for the counter-boycott of German goods and services in the United States, prior to entering World War II. The Council produced a list of boycotted companies and sent demands to those companies to cease the import of goods from Germany. The boycott movement, and the Council’s work, ended when the United States entered the war in December 1941.
