Description

Soft cover book with the title “De Joden” in black ink and “Nederland” in light blue. The cover features three caricatures of Jewish men with magenta skin in decreasing heights from left to right standing on a blue image of the Netherlands.

Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: Dutch anti-Semitic propaganda pamphlet with the typical tropes, exaggerations, caricatures and stereotypes in both words and photographs; e.g., Jewish religious habits, greed, etc., comparing Jews of the day unfavorably to the “true” Netherlanders. Henry Ford, the American automobile magnate and notorious anti-Semite, who published his anti-Semitic screeds in the Dearborn Independent—a newspaper he in fact owned—is discussed herein. “Von Montis” was in fact the nom de plume of Hans Paul Kreutzer, who would be arrested during a corruption trial, and subsequently committed suicide while in jail.
