ONE OF THE RAREST ANTI-JEWISH NAZI BOOKS FOR CHILDREN

DER GIFTPILZ

(THE POISONOUS MUSHROOM OR THE TOADSTOOL)

PUBLISHED IN 1938 BY JULIUS STREICHER'S STÜRMERVERLAG IN NÜRNBERG

AN EXTREMELY RARE ITEM OF HISTORIC SIGNIFICANCE IN VERY GOOD CONDITION

This book is one of three books for kids that were published by Julius Streicher's Stürmerverlag in Nürnberg. The extremely anti-semitic tales are written by Ernst Hiemer and the illustrations are by Philip Rupprecht, better known as the Stürmer cartoonist FIPS.

The titles of the other two Stürmer kids books were "Trau keinem Fuchs" (Trust No Fox) and "Der Pudelmopsdackelpinscher" (an arrangement of dog names). Each of the three books was aimed especially at children and each of the books contains short stories for children together with an anti-Jewish illustration telling them how to recognize a Jew, his criminal and mean nature and so on. The title itself is self-explanatory and in the story in the book it tells about a poisonous mushroom: " Just as it is often hard to tell a toadstool from an edible mushroom, it is often very difficult to recognize the Jew as a swindler and criminal, too..." Other illustrated stories in this book show the kids how to tell a Jew: "the Jewish nose is bent, it looks like the number six..." or how an ugly Jew tries to make two Aryan kids follow him home, alluring them with candy; another one is about how Jews torment animals, how it slowly dies and the Jews stand around it and laugh and so on!

The book is in very good condition. used but well preserved. It comes from a private collection ( NOT Ex library ). The original cloth cover as well as the fragile colored cover picture are undamaged. Very good inner condition. The leaves are bright and clean. They are firm and flexible and don't suffer from any amount of wear. The binding as a whole is firm and tight. The colors of the illustrations are as bright as if the book was printed yesterday and not 80+ years ago!
