Nazi antisemitisc propaganda drawing on theJudensau tradition of caricature that sought to dehumanise Jewish people. The tradition dates back to the Middle Ages when images were displayed in churches, public buildings, town gates and town walls. It was later revived by the Nazis.

Antisemitic painting, coloured, possibly the page of a book or brochure (Pag. 392 is printed in the top right corner), in the Judensau tradition.

The main picture shows three Jews who are wearing so-called 'Jew-hats'. The headline reads: Au weih [Rabbi Ansehl?] au au Mausch auwei au au; under the Headline is a picture of an injured body of a child with the banner: Diese Abbildung stehet zu Frankfurt am Maijn am Bruecken Thurm abgemahlt.

The statement beneath the painting reads: A I475, am Gruenen Donnerstag ward das Kindlein Simeo 2 half Jahr alt von den Juden umgebracht. Sauff du die Milch friss du den dreck das ist doch euer bestes geschleck.
