VERY RARE 1936 ANTI-SEMITIC STÜRMER CHILDRENS BOOK
‘TRAU KEINEM FUCHS AUF GRÜNER HEID UND KEINEM JUD BEI SEINEM EID!’
(Trust No Fox on the green meadow and no Jew giving an oath!)
The book is a very nice copy of the 5th edition, no damage to any of the pages and all full color pictures are awesome in their color. The front and back covers show only minimal wear with only a few minor scratches. This book and the two other anti-Semitic books for children that were published by Julius Streicher’s Stürmerverlag in Nürnberg were regarded as such dangerous material that the Allies destroyed every copy they could find. And many Germans disposed their copies before the Allies could find them, especially in the Russian occupied parts of Germany.
The extremely anti-Semitic text, written in Sütterlin – the old-style German handwriting, was written by Elwira Bauer, an 18-year-old art student and Kindergarten teacher, the illustrations are by Philip Rupprecht, better known as the Stürmer cartoonist FIPS.
The titles of the other two Stürmer children’s books were “Der Giftpilz” (The Poisonous Mushroom) and “Der Pudelmopsdackelpinscher” (an arrangement of dog names). We might be able to find these two books through our network of contacts.
The book contains short stories for children, each story with an illustration, how to recognize a Jew, his criminal and mean nature and so on. Each tale contains a full page / full color picture and the explaining text on the facing page.
The size of the hard cover book is 10 x 8 inch, considering that it was a book for kids that was published 85+ years ago it is very good condition. It is a copy of the fifth edition, published in 1936. Some stain spots but otherwise in very good condition.
