"Red Army commanders, politicians, thousands of you have already moved in with us ...". A two-sided antisemitic proclamation calling on the Soviets to surrender and join the ranks of the Germans, To the family of the peoples of Europe free of Jews. Dropped from Nazi planes on the Soviet side Towards the end of the war. 1940s. rare.

"... if you move to the German side you will receive a proper welcome and receive an equal place among equals in the friendly family of the peoples of New Europe without Jews, Bolsheviks, and wealthy people. Do not hesitate and come to us, the way to us is a way of life ... hurry to join our side .. "Beat the Jews!" On the front of the proclamation is a large illustration of a Russian family leaving their homeland from the fear of the Jew in the background.

Since the Nazi propaganda ministry began its antisemitic activities, one of the methods of delegitimization against the Jews has been to address the enemies and present them with the common enemy - the Jews. Supposedly, even if there is a war between us, there is no greater and more important war than the one against the Jews. In some countries like Vichy France and Fascist Italy this propaganda did succeed and the government did mark the Jews as the common enemy of the Germans and the French or the Italians. Before us a similar attempt to position the Jews as the common enemy of the Russians and the Germans, with the ulterior motive of persuading the Russians to surrender, and to side with the Germans in their war against the Jews. On the back of the proclamation below is an eagle emblem and swastika and the inscription "German Wehrmacht".
