Sale 38 Lot 1111

UKRAINIAN WORLD WAR II ANTI-SEMETIC BROADSIDE An excessively rare pair of anti-Bolshevik, anti-Semitic pair of broadsides, ca. 1942, issued during the German occupation of the Ukraine. Each measures 17 1/2" x 23", both printed on the same sheet and not detached. The first shows a caricature of the two ideologues (Stalin and Molotov), with two heads but a single body. Both of their arms reach out to pat a smaller caricature on the shoulder, with Stalin reaching out to Kaganovich, while Molotov touches a young Khrushchev. The adjoining poster features caricatures of Jewish Bolsheviks as the exploiters of the poor Ukrainian peasants, with one ringing a "freedom bell", which is actually a tongue bearing a Star of David. Several minor tears to all four borders, separation at center reinforced with tape on verso, not affecting graphics, wear, a few holes, and so on. Condition just good, but a striking, hateful example nonetheless.
Estimate $ 500-600
