Das Lied vom Levi [The Song of Levi], by Dr. Eduard Schwechten. The printing house and publishing house of the anti-Semitic bookstore Eduard Hensel Cologne, 1930s. On the cover is a red ink stamp: "Prohibited".

An anti-Semitic rhyming story for children that describes the Jewish swindler Levi who grew up as a child with a bad temper and through his childhood he learns to be scheming and harm those around him, until he grows up and becomes the great enemy of Germany. At the end of the story, the author calls on the German nation to wake up against the Jews: "Nordic men full of strength and courage... A German will never be a slave to the Jews... The one who proud and noble and brave and loyal will never bow to a tyrant...".
