Persecution of Jews; Irene Harand Resistance Organization

A traveling antisemitic propaganda exhibition titled Der ewige Jude (The Eternal Jew) opened at Munich on November 8, 1937. Jews were portrayed as moral degenerates in exhibits, lectures, books, and posters – alternatively as money-grubbing capitalists or as Communist conspirators, either way bent on world domination.

Irene Harand, a German Christian, organized anti-Nazi resistance from a base in Austria.
