Postcards tell us a story: The Jewish stereotype

Antisemitism did not start with the Nazis, it is probably the oldest hatred. As philatelists we love to dive into a subject as deeply as possible. However there is an interesting aspect that we haven't seen, the Jewish stereotype as seen postcards. In this presentation we will see how the Jewish stereotype is shown on postcards, sometimes in a comic manner and sometimes in a vile manner.
