Eugenics poster about the Law for the Protection of Blood and German Honor

Eugenics poster entitled "The Nuremberg Law for the Protection of Blood and German Honor."  The illustration is a stylized map of the borders of central Germany. Imposed upon the map are both a schematic of the forbidden degrees of marriage between Aryans and non-Aryans and the text of the Law for the Protection of German Blood. The German text at the bottom reads, "Maintaining the purity of blood insures the survival of the German people."

This poster is from the series “Inheritance and Racial Hygiene.” Stuttgart, Germany, circa 1935.
