Julius Streicher Meeting Posters

This advertises a meeting in 1922 organized by one of Streicher’s pre-Nazi parties, the Deutsche Werkgemeinschaft. The theme is one of the favorite anti-Semitic canards: the claim that 300 people rule the world, based on a statement by Walter Rathenau that was taken considerably out of context. This mysterious group is out to enslave the world. “The truth must come out!” the poster proclaims.

According to the text: “The mysterious poisoning of two working girls in Nuremberg by a Jewish attorney received no punishment in court. The acquittal has aroused great uproar in the entire population.” This is an early example of Streicher’s focus on alleged Jewish sexual crimes.
