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. This anti-Jewish parade float shows Polish Jews entering Germany followed by vermin. The inscription states: "They came-they took." Dresden, Germany, 1933-1939. Propagandists also offered more subtle antisemitic language and viewpoints for educated, middle-class Germans offended by crude caricatures. University professors and religious leaders gave antisemitic themes respectability by incorporating them into their lectures and church sermons.
