Illustrierter Beobachter November 1929

In a very early issue (November 1929) of the Illustrierter Beobachter, there was a photo of a dog puppet dressed as a Prussian Police Officer which was the window display of a Jewish store in Berlin.

The article below is a report of the trial against Julius Streicher, the so called “Talmudprozess”. This trial was the beginning of the career of Phil Rupprecht, better known under his pen name “Fips”

He was hired by a newspaper to document the trial. Instead he drew pictures of Streicher’s Jewish opponents. When Streicher saw them, he hired Rupprecht and from then on he did the illustrations for Der Stürmer periodicals as well as for two of the German children’s books that were published by Streicher, “Der Giftpilz” (“The Poisonous Mushroom”) and Trau keinem Fuchs auf grüner Heid und keinem Jud auf seinem Eid (“Don’t Trust a Fox in a Green Pasture Or a Jew Upon His Oath”)
