"The Jews in the USA"

Nazi Propaganda publication from 1939. "The Jews in the USA," by Dr. Hans Diebow pubished in Germany by the Nazi Party (DSDAP). This work was designed to show that there "was no difference between the Jews of Europe and Jews in America." Photos are taken in odd situations or are designed to enhance stereotypes of the physical aspects of the Jewish body. The cover shows New York Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia eating at a barbeque (LaGuardia's father was an American army bandleader and his mother was European of aristocratic Italian Jewish lineage). LaGuardia's sister, interestingly enough, born in 1881 in New York City, Emma Gluck and her Hungarian Jewish husband were living in Budapest in 1944 when Nazi troops occupied the city. The Gestapo arrested her as a political prisoner because she was La Guardia's sister. She was deported to Mauthausen with her husband, and enslaved at Ravensbrueck, a notorious concentration camp for women. Gluck was 64 when she was released from Ravensbrück in the spring of 1945.)
