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 promote Nazi anti-Semitic objectives, a travelling exhibition named “Der Ewige Jude” ("The Eternal Jew") was created in 1937. It appeared in five cities during the following eighteen months. The exhibition depicted Jews—their clothes, facial characteristics, cultural items and art- in every conceivable negative and unfavorable way, and markedly “degenerate” in contrast to the Nazi Aryan ideal. This anti-semitic postcard bears the red cachet "Zugelassen fuer Austellung: Der ewige Jude".
