The Stürmer Publishing Company
Julius Streicher in Nürnberg stands alone as far and away the most anti-Semitic publisher among dozens of publishers in Germany during the Third Reich. All others pale by comparison.
Among the first, most vitriolic and stereotypical of the Stürmer Verlag children's books was Trau keinem Fuchs auf grüner Heid und keinem Jud auf seinem Eid (Don't Trust a Fox in a Green Pasture Or a Jew Upon His Oath!)
an 7-5/8 x 9-5/8 inch very, very heavily illustrated 44 page hard cover by Elvira Bauer (not Elwira as it is spelled on some “scholarly” university websites), first published by Stürmer Verlag
in 1936. The illustrations are by controversial artist Fips
, shown in his Kriegsmarine uniform in the photo above left. Fips also illustrated Julius Streicher's other rabidly anti-Jewish children's book Der Giftpilz
or The Poison Mushroom.
The book begins with a quick look at the creation of the races, and how, according to Bauer, from the earliest of times Jews made a burden of themselves on the others. Then it contrasts "typical" Germans with "typical" Jews, explains Jewish names, Jewish traits and the Jewish mistreatment of the non-Jews they came in contact with over time.
Toward the end the book explains that a man named Streicher from Franken had the Jews trembling with the truths he published in his newspaper Der Stürmer.
It explains the Jews would be expelled from schools and driven from Germany, and ends with the Streicher maxim Die Juden sind unser Unglück (The Jews are our Misfortune).
Reasonably accurate translations of "Don't Trust a Fox in a Green Pasture Or a Jew Upon His Oath" are available on the internet so we will not bother with one here. Far more important than the specific textual content of this book are the illustrations, and the fact that it was ever published at all and reprinted in at least 4 editions. In the Allied denazification campaigns that followed the defeat of Nazi Germany in WW2 virtually all examples of this book were destroyed.
Julius Streicher, publisher of this book (shown in the image above), was hanged by the Allies in Nuremberg in 1946 seconds after shouting, “Heil Hitler!”
This is an extremely rare and controversial Third Reich book! You can pay far more for this same book on other internet websites.
