Hand-colored, antisemitic caricature of a Jewish man by Fips

Object | Accession Number: 1992.66.4

Hand-colored caricature of a Jewish man drawn by Philipp Rupprecht (Fips), and likely cut out from an advertisement for Der Stürmer. Der Stürmer (The Stormtrooper) was a viciously anti-Jewish newspaper published in Germany from 1923-1945 by Julius Streicher, an early Nazi Party member. Der Stürmer thrived on scandal, and published sensational stories of Jews committing disgusting, evil acts. It was also infamous for its antisemitic cartoons created by artists such as Philipp Rupprecht (who used the penname Fips), one of the Nazi’s preeminent propaganda creators. His illustrations portrayed Jews as heartless and cruel, and featured discriminatory images of Jews with exaggerated facial features, and misshapen bodies. Rupprecht also illustrated the antisemitic children’s book Der Giftpilz (The Poisonous Mushroom). Following the end of World War II in 1945, Rupprecht was put on trial and sentenced to ten years of hard labor of which he only served five years.
