Antisemitic cartoon by Fips of a Jew selling nude women in a shop window acquired by a US soldier

Object | Accession Number: 1993.86.1

Antisemitic cartoon by Fips (Phillip Rupprecht) taken from Julius Streicher's villa, Pleikershof, in Cadolzburg, Germany, by E.H. Mayer, a US soldier, in May 1945. Fips made the drawing in 1924 for Der Stuermer, the viciously anti-Jewish newspaper published by Streicher from 1923-1945. Fips was a well known antisemitic caricaturist for Der Stuermer from 1923-1945. Rupprecht was arrested by the US Army in 1945, tried by a German denazification court, and sentenced to six years hard labor. Streicher was tried by the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg, convicted, and executed per the ruling that his repeated articles calling for the annihilation of the Jewish race were a direct indictment to murder and a crime against humanity.
