Anti-Catholic Imagery from Nazi Propaganda
Der Sturmer was a Nazi propaganda magazine. You can read more about it here.
Recently I stumbled across the image, below, in a Google search of Der Sturmer. I don't know if this image ever appeared in Der Sturmer, but it did turn up in my search.
The Catholic figure being paid off by a caricatured Jew is carrying a newspaper called the Neue Saar Post. I found mention of that newspaper in a Guenter Lewy's book The Catholic Church and Nazi Germany. Lewy describes it as a Catholic newspaper strongly opposed to Saar being part of Nazi Germany. You can read more here.
The image above it is from Facebook friend Peter Sean Bradley. It identifies Catholicism, Communism, and Judaism as enemies of the German people.
