Broadside with black text. Portrait photograph of man in a suit and hat in center.
Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash:
Anti-Semitic broadside issued by Julius Streicher’s newspaper “Der Sturmer”. With a photo of prominent Nuremberg financier and lawyer Richard Kohn at center, it loosely reads: “Nuremberg bank-Jew exposed as a racial disgrace! The fairy tale of a decent Jew Kohn… For years he has desecrated German women and girls with impunity. The bank-Jew Kohn will not escape a just punishment!...”. Richard Kohn was an attorney, city councilman and member of the German Democratic Party (DDP). He was as well a partner in Bankhaus Anton Kohn and held numerous positions in banking and insurance. His apartment was destroyed during Kristallnacht on November 9, 1938. Kohn was arrested and the Bankhaus Anton Kohn was liquidated. Richard Kohn was deported to Riga in November 1941 with other members of his family, all of whom perished.
