DER GIFTPILZ (POISONED MUSHROOM)

NAZI CHILDREN'S BOOK. DER GIFTPILZ [THE POISONED MUSHROOM] by Ernst Hiemer. Nurnberg: Sturmer (1938, no additional printings) 4to (8 1/4 x 10 1/2"), cloth spine and narrow strip of cloth along front and back fore edges, pictorial boards, light soil, slight edge rubbing, VG+. First edition. Published by Der Sturmer under the direction of the notorious Julius Streicher. Illustrated in full color by Fips (P. Rupprecht) featuring grossly stereotypical depictions of Jewish men and women. The Jews are portrayed as dirty and conniving and the German youth as wholesome and clean. Affixed to blank endpapers and flyleaf are 3 anti Semitic banners in Dutch. They read: "Make the Netherlands free from Jews", "Combat the Jewish influence", and "Whoever buys from Jews hates his own people." This title, along with Elvira Bauer's "Trau Keinem Fuchs" remains one of the most striking examples of the power of propaganda in children's literature.
