ANTI-SEMITIC CARICATURES (4)

Lot of four anti-semitic pencil drawings on paper, depicting a bare-feet man in a top-hat and frock with a large nose clinging onto a globe with coins fallen out from the bottom, titled ‘ Oh, my dear little world!’; a drawing showing two Jewish looking characters, one wearing an armband with the Star of David, being chased by a German tank. The next drawing shows a skinny-boned family in ragged clothes identified as ‘The Poles’ and on the right an obese couple, dressed in nice clothes and holding a sack of money identified as ‘The Jews’. The fourth picture shows a group of eight angry and upset characters with bags and suitcases all walking in the same direction, looking like they are being evicted.
