Description

Front: A cartoon of a Jewish man climbing hill with a goat. Includes a caption that translates to, "So the Jew robbed the last piece and poverty, misery remains."

Back: White postcard with black printed postcard lines. Includes writing in grey ink, a grey postage stamp, black and red hand stamps, and a pasted sticker with an illustration of a Jewish face. The text on the red hand stamp translates to, "How have worn... laughing, and find like... remain free! ... 21 September 1938."

Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: The date of the postmark, September 30, 1938, was the date that Germany, France and Britain signed the Munich Pact, which essentially sealed Czechoslovakia's fate, putatively warding off a crisis by ceding the Sudetenland to Hitler.
