Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: German postcard commemorating the state visit of President Eisenhower to Germany in August, 1959. The author of this postcard, evidently unhappy with Eisenhower’s visit 14 years after Germany’s defeat in WWI, wrote: ”How can you welcome and celebrate such a war criminal here in Germany? Did you all forget, that he was responsible for all this destruction and death of millions? This Jew is a war criminal! Shame on you!”
