Yellow postcard with an illustration of a stereotyped Jewish man, holding a cane and map with the Communist hammer and sickle in one hand and coins in the other. Includes caption, "Der Ewige Jude" (The Eternal Jew) in type that mirrors Hebrew. Back is addressed to Beita Schniler in blue ink.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, 1938Berlin: November 12, 1938 - January 13, 1939Bremen: February 12, 1939 - March 5, 1939Madegburg: May 13, 1939 - June 11, 1939.This crude semi-official postcard was printed for and sold at the Munich Exhibition. "The Eternal Jew," in red letters, directs attention to the source of all of Germany's problems - as dictated by the Nazis. The two lines thereunder reads: "Great Political Show in the Library of the German Museum at Munich - from 8 November 1937 - daily from 10-9 o'clock. The special postmark, also issued for this occasion, again draws attention to "The Eternal Jew" and proclaims Munich the Capital of the Movement.
