VINNITSA Nazi antisemitic propaganda frequently linked Jews to the fears of their German and foreign audiences. This poster, displayed in the German-occupied Soviet Union to foment both anti-Soviet and antisemitic fervor, uses the stereotype of the bloodthirsty “Jewish Bolshevik commissar” to associate “the Jew” with the murder of more than 9,000 Soviet citizens in Vinnitsa, Ukraine, an atrocity committed by Stalin’s secret police in 1937–38. German forces uncovered the massacre in May 1943. Unknown artist, 1943.–Library of Congress, Prints and Photographs Division, Washington, DC
