Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash:
The third - and rarest - of three antisemitic children’s books published by Julius Streicher’s Stürmer publishing house in 1940 was titled Pudelmopsdackelpinscher (Poodle-Pug-Dachshund-Pinscher) or The Mongrel. The author was again Ernst Hiemer, and the illustrations were provided by Willi Hofman. Jews are compared to repugnant forms of animal life: hyenas, chameleons, locusts, bedbugs, mongrel dogs, drone bees, poisonous snakes, tapeworms, and bacteria, etc. His audience notwithstanding, Hiemer exercises little restraint in his social-Darwinian solution to the Jewish problem in this crude, racist children’s book: to destroy the Jew before he destroys us in the same way that the danger of poisonous snakes is eliminated when these snakes are eradicated. For Streicher and those in his employ, eliminationist antisemitism is the only way to build a new Germany under Adolf Hitler.
