Nazi/German Propaganda Poster

This poster is similar to Poster 008 that depicts the standard Nazi image of "The Wandering Jew" (literally the 'Eternal Jew') in a form meant to make the Jewish man both menacing and focused on money. The bottom text advertises a "big political show," an exhibition at a hall in Vienna, open every day after 2 August 1938. This poster was the symbol for the anti-Semitic show and the same image hung on a large banner outside the building. The same show opened in November 1937 in Munich, where it ran until 31 January 1938, attracting thousands of visitors per day.

The posters in this collection were created by the Nazi political party or the Nazi government of Germany during the 1920s through 1945. They depict the Nazi themes of the racial superiority of Germans, the subordination of the individual to the collective state, the hatred of the Jewish people and others considered enemies, the supremacy of Hitler, and the glory of service in war to further their aims.

The Nazi regime was vile and repugnant, responsible for suffering and death on a vast scale before and during World War II in Europe. The Nazis were discredited and destroyed at enormous cost to humanity. These posters are presented for historical reference only. No endorsement of Nazi ideas is implied or intended by this display.
