Farming woman, have I got something special for you
today. Look at this material! You can make a dress
from it that will make you look like a baroness, like a
countess, like a queen.
It is a festival evening in the village when the Jew turns up with his wares. The Jew flatters the peasant woman
and spreads out his wares.
Everything the heart desires, Levy has for sale.
But the German peasant girl turns down his offers.
The Jew persists, and shows her some stuff of ….. purest wool. That will make a dress for you, woman, so that
you will look like a Baroness or a Princess, like a Queen. And cheap, too, that I can tell you!
But the peasant woman knows the Jew too well.
I am buying nothing from you, she says, and goes away.
The Jew packs up and goes away cursing. He consoles himself with the knowledge that there are lots of other
peasants who can be more easily duped than this one.
Woe to the woman, however, who lets herself be taken in by his chatter. It will happen to her. As has happened
to so many other peasant women once they have let the Jew in. There is no escape. There is an old saying:
The book for German children, published by Julius Streicher called the Giftpilz (The Poison Mushroom) sought to educate children in the ways of the jüdischen Parasiten. It is still true today and there are lessons to be learned from it, not just for children either!
