Low, David Alexander Cecil, 1891-1963 :Miracle on Streicher's 'Holy Mount' [29 June 1939]

Reference Number: NON-ATL-C-0083

German citizens gazing skywards towards a short fat ugly man in lederhosen who is floating skyward, borne on the wings of two vultures, whose wings are marked 'hate the Jew'. The statement of 'The famous natural beauty-god' Streicher 'We need no priests and pastors ... Be beautiful godlike and natural' is reproduced. Streicher's newspaper, Der Sturmer, is burning on top of the mountain and providing the updraft for the flying figure. The newspaper had a large circulation and waged a relentless anti-Semitic campaign.
