Portrait of Karl Marx - Flag embroidered silk fabric, hanging and sewn to an old wooden strip. Made in the textile factory "East Is Red". Hangzhou, China. the 50's.
In pre-communist revolution China in 1954, most silk weaving was done in family workshops in Hangzhou city. During the 1950s, when China advanced to industrial creation, and private sewing shops began to close one by one, several examples were created that illustrated the Chinese Industrial Revolution — one of which is a portrait of Karl Marx before us. The portrait of Marx, created at the "East Is Red" textile factory (named after the popular anthem of the Chinese Cultural Revolution), like other public actions taken by Mao Zedong, was intended to be hung in public places across China. The portrait characterized the Chinese renunciation of China’s long-standing traditional customs and return to the ancestors of communism. Silk itself symbolized one of the hallmarks of Chinese pride, as according to Chinese tradition, China was the first country to start producing silk fabrics thousands of years ago. The reason why the figure of the Jewish Marx was chosen to represent the Chinese textile revolution was because in his early writings Marx harshly criticized the exploitation and capitalist abuse of workers in the textile factories, he argued that the proletariat was employed in harsh working conditions and meager wages. In Marx's early vision in his writings of 1844 he presents the textile workers to be the first whose terms of employment would improve as a result of the communist revolution. In doing so, the Chinese expressed the new way of gender equality in creating many sources of employment for textile workers, and taking them out of private hands. The revolution yielded results and to this day Hangzhou is one of the industrialized city in China, houses the National Silk Museum of China. The city is industrialized in a wide variety of fields of tourism, agriculture, textiles, and light industry, and is often compared to the Silicon Valley of the United States.

A large antisemitic engraving depicting the stingy Jewish Shylock Lending at interest from William Shakespeare's play "The Merchant of Venice" (written in the 16th century) in the scene of the knife, published by John Hamilton Mortimer - London 1776. (Printer details and the year of pulication below the engraving). Extremely rare.
The engraving depicts the scene in which Shylock holds a knife in his hand with a devilish look - according to a drawing presented in the Artists' Association in 1775. In the scene, the Jewish Shylock pursues greed Lend three thousand ducats to Antonio Christian, and terms with him in a written and signed note that if he does not return the money on time, the Jew will be allowed to cut a liter of meat from his body. Antonio lost his fortune and could not repay the debt, and Shylock, decided to take revenge on Antonio and to cut a liter of his flesh on the side of the heart. The engraving shows the Jewish Shylock holding the knife in his hand and preparing to cut Antonio's flesh on the side of his heart. At the bottom of the engraving appears the relevant passage from the play in which Shylock is preparing to sustain the intervention is quoted: "If ev'ry ducat in six thousand ducats / were in six parts and ev'ry part a ducat / I would not draw them: I would have my Bond".
The play accompanied by harsh antisemitic passages against the egoistic nature of the Jews, and it caused waves of antisemitic outbursts throughout Europe over the years, and whenever disagreements arose between Jews and Christians the play served as a backdrop for antisemitic stereotypical representation of the Jew as a threat to the decent Christian community.

LE PREFET DU DEPARTEMENT DE LA STURA - An antisemitic proclamation on behalf of Napoleon, forbidding Jews to use family names from the Bible ('from the Old Testament'), signed in print by Napoleon. Stura (an area in Italy annexed to France during Napoleon's rule) July 20, 1808.
In a special order issued after the conquest of Italian Stura by Napoleon's forces, the French sought to rearrange the surnames of the local Jews. The decree, which is divided into seven sections and an additional clarification entitled: "Imperial decree concerning juifs that do not have family names and fixed persons" - "Imperial decree concerning Jews who do not have a family name" , states that Jews often confuse the first name with The family, thus creating a situation where there are many Jews with no last name at all who are called only by their first name. Jews must adopt a last name within three months and declare the new name to the registrar of the local municipality in which they live. Article 3 states that: "The last name taken from the Old Testament will not be accepted as a family name, nor will any name of a Jewish city in which Jews lived in the past be accepted." Article 4 reinforces Article 3, which states that Jews must be informed of how the new installation is being carried out, and to tell the authorities Jews who choose a surname not in accordance with the regulation. "Jews found without appropriate surnames will be expelled from the territory of the French Empire." It is also written that the new regulation is contrary to what is accepted in the ancient Jewish tradition of the believing Jews who escaped from Egyptian bondage "because they did not change their name."
The proclamation is signed in print by Napoleon Bonaparte (Napoleon I). In those years, many Jewish families who chose to remain in place for fear of deportation were forced to use fake family names, according to the regulation. In 1814 Napoleon was defeated in the Italian sector, and the Jews of the French Empire regained Italian citizenship. Although it is known about a number of places where installation was still maintained even after the Italian reconquest.

13 issues of the Jüdische Familien-Forschung - The Study of the Jewish Family - issues dealing with the Jewish family, its roots, and its ramifications - The Jewish research used by the Nazis against the Jews themselves. Berlin 1925-1929 (discontinuous issues).
The Gesellschaft für die Jüdische Familien-Forschung ("Jewish Family Research Society"), founded in 1924, began publishing the pamphlet, which aimed to connect Jewish genealogists and provide a platform for their research into the roots of German Jewish families. The editor of the issue, the ophthalmologist Arthur Czellitzer (1871-1943), believed that exposing the Jewish family lineage was especially important to the Jewish people. Since at that time he had no state, and most of the Jews did not speak Hebrew or any other language that would unite them, Czellitzer sought what would unite the Jews on a genealogical basis (as he writes in his preface to the first issue of 1924). Each issue deals with the history of the Jewish family and its origins according to the family names, and extensive information in its possession. Also in the issues appeared an 'supplement' known as "Suchblatt" in which the readers themselves participated in the writing and sent to the system the result of their research. The company published a total of 50 issues between the years 1924-1938. A title page with the names of the tribes of Israel appears on the covers of all issues.
Tragically, because dozens of Jewish surnames appeared in the various issues, as well as their origins and migration in various countries, and the whereabouts of families all over the world during the reign of Nazi Germany, The Nazis, who ordered to stop its distribution, took advantage of the large amount of information that appeared in them to persecute and murder the German Jews. Chelitzer himself was murdered in the Sobibor death camp.
