Description

White postcard with an illustration of a fat man in pinstripe pants leaning on a desk with a book. Behind him a woman in a blue dress and black apron types.

Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: To further anti-semitic objectives, an exhibition named "Der Ewige Jude (""The Eternal Jew") was established in 1937, three years before the film of the same name. The exhibition depicted Jews in every imaginable negative and unfavorable way. It was to appear in five cities over the course of eighteen months. This postcard is from Vienna. It was later to receive a "favor cancel" in 1943, shown in red.
