Description

A white postcard with an illustration of a fat man in a suit wearing glasses and a hat over a wooden bar.

Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: To further anti-semitic objectives, an exhibition named "The Eternal Jew" was established in 1937. The exhibition depicted Jews in every imaginable negative and unfavorable way. Truth and history were totally ignored and ugly and inane falsehoods were presented as facts. This show appeared in five cities during the following eighteen months. Each city had a special cancel for the event. The locations and dates of the exhibit were:

Munich: November 8, 1937- December 19, 1937

Vienna: August 2, 1938 - October 23, 1938

Berlin: November 12, 1938 - January 13, 1939

Bremen: February 12, 1939 - March 5, 1939

Madegburg: May 13, 1939 - June 11, 1939.

This anti-semitic postcard bears the red cachet "Zugelassen fuer Austellung: Der ewige Jude," which was used for admission at the 1938 Exhibtion. However, the dial is different and is dated Dec. 15, 1943.
