Opening of the traveling exhibition "The Eternal Jew" in Munich in 1937. Government and Party took great pains to "educate' the population in anti-Semitism. The propaganda show exploited traditional anti-Jewish prejudices: "Usury and the Sale of Stolen Goods" on the left panel; on the right panel the discriminatory Jewish dress code of the Middle Ages, said to have "warned off non-Jews not to commit racial disgrace," i.e. not to intermarry or have sex with Jews.
