A child's introduction to
THIS WAS a piece of anti-semitic history, the
foul children's book produced by the presses of Julius
Streicher, who was hanged at Nuremberg in 1946.
Eighteen-year old author Elwira
Bauer penned this children's poetry book ("a picture
book for large and small") entitled Trau keinem Fuchs
auf grüner Heid und keinem Jüd auf seinem
Eid ( Stürmer Verlag, Nuremberg, 1936) -- Trust
No Fox on his Green Heath and No Jew on his Oath.
For a fine English translation of this
book, which was written in the German original in
copperplate Gothic handwriting, see the German
Propaganda archive of Calvin University.
Very few copies of this work have
survived. One is offered for sale on the website of
Reich Auctions. Our vendor is also asking $3,500 for
his copy. Academic institutions studying the origins and
propagation of anti-Semitism are expected to snap it
