Description

A thin card with yellow and black print with a cartoon of a main in the center with a yellow star of David on either side of him within a chart of sorts that implicates Roosevelt, Churchill, and Stalin

Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: A small propaganda sheet- an example of the Nazi-themed, antisemitic Parole der Woche (watchword of the week) issued by the Nazi party in Berlin, alleging the existence of a conspiracy of Jews in positions of power with links to allied leaders. The diagram purports to be demonstrative of the interdigitated connections existing between powerful Jews-construed to be war profiteers and “rabble rousers”- and world leaders, including Roosevelt, Churchill, and Stalin and other Bosheviks. This network so described is nucleated by Bernard Baruch, wealthy financier, philanthropist, and friend and advisor of both Roosevelt and Churchill. The so-called “unofficial president of the United States”, Baruch was also involved in developing the treaty of Versailles. This propaganda appears heavily influenced by the conspiracy theory alleged in the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, the widely disseminated Russian antisemitic hoax purporting to describe a Jewish plan for world domination.
