FIPS PRINTS FROM DER GIFTPILZ - THE POISON MUSHROOM

Poison Mushroom - Der Giftpilz
ALL 18 FIPS ILLUSTRATIONS FROM
DER GIFTPILZ
(
THE POISON MUSHROOM)
ONE OF THE
MOST ANTI-SEMITIC BOOKS EVER PUBLISHED!
Der Giftpilz (The Poison Mushroom) was published in 1938 by Stürmer Verlag of Nürnberg, Germany in follow-up to an earlier success Trau keinem Fuchs auf grüner Heid und keinem Jud bei seinem Eid (Don't Trust a Fox in a Green Meadow Or a Jew Under Oath) in 1936. Like the “Fox” book, “The Poison Mushroom” was written by Stürmer Hauptschriftleiter Ernst Hiemer and illustrated with 18 colorful paintings by Philipp “Fips” Rupprecht.
In addition to being a book publisher, Stürmer Verlag was a newspaper publisher, publishing both the enormously anti-Jewish daily Der Stürmer and the Fränkischer Tageszeitung. Because of the anti-Semitic nature of everything published by Stürmer Verlag during the Third Reich of Adolf Hitler, most of it was destroyed when the Allies purged Germany of Nazi literature after World War II. Today, single copies of the newspaper Der Stürmer can sell for prices in excess of $250.00. Original examples of Der Giftpilz have sold at auction for $3000.00.

Der Giftpilz is the story that begins with a mother explaining to her child how mushrooms are somewhat like people - some are good and some are poison. The book then expands on the comparison by equating Jews to poison mushrooms.
