Anti-Jewish parade float

Public displays of antisemitism in Nazi Germany took a variety of forms, from posters and newspapers to films and radio addresses. A float in the Fastnacht (Shrove Tuesday) parade in Singen am Hohentwiel features workers from the local aluminum cylinder works feeding "Jews," wearing paper noses, to the "Jew Devourer," a voracious crocodile. The motto carried by the workers' unit in the parade (not shown) was: "Grumblers and Trouble-Makers go under the Roller."
