1936: The Nazis
 pg. 100 
David Frankfurter (foreground), a Jewish student in Switzerland, was sentenced to 18 years in prison for his role in the murder of Nazi Party Foreign Section official Wilhelm Gustloff. In addition to his prison sentence, Frankfurter was deprived of his civil rights and expelled from Switzerland, but not before he paid court costs and restitution.

August Cardinal Hlond, the head of the Polish Catholic Church, called for discrimination against Polish Jews unless they converted to Catholicism. Thought to be less antisemitic than many Polish clergymen, Hlond's pastoral letter blasting the Jews for their ņharmful moralityņ revealed the growing influence of Nazi ideology in Poland. Church-sanctioned anti-Jewish policy undermined the tenuous position of Polish Jewry and exacerbated tensions between Jews and Gentiles.

The title of this children's book is Trau keinem Fuchs auf gruener Heid und Keinem Jud bei Seinem Eid (You Can't Trust a Fox in a Heath and a Jew on His Oath). The book disseminated antisemitic propaganda to Germany's unsuspecting youth. This illustration leaves nothing to the imagination.
