DE JODENSPIEGEL: JODENDOM EN ANTISEMITISME IN DE WERELDGESCHIEDENIS - The Jewish Mirror: Judaism and Anti-Semitism in World History, by E.V. Rodolf - An antisemitic publication in the Netherlands during the Nazi occupation in World War II. Published by Volksche Uitgeverij Westland, Amsterdam 1943.
An extremely antisemitic publication that portrays Jews as the number one enemy of humanity since the dawn of history. The book aims to disseminate racial theory among the general public and condition the Dutch population towards the persecution of Jews. To this end, the author distorts Jewish history from its beginning and describes it as a long series of destruction and ruin brought upon the nations by Jews living among them, with the climax being in modern times before the outbreak of World War I. "The Jewish question has increasingly become the central problem of our national, state, economic lives, profoundly influencing all aspects of our lives". The antisemitic claims repeatedly spread by Nazi party propagandists appear throughout the book - the greedy Jew, the Jew is not moral by nature, he is not a producer, enemy of liberalism, etc., detailing according to the entire racial theory from Alfred Rosenberg's teachings.
The book is full of dozens of antisemitic photographs and cartoons, including photos of influential Jews in several European countries, accompanied by defamatory statements accusing them of being responsible for the economic and political disasters in those countries - in Germany as conspirators in a devious plot to bring down the government, in Russia inventing Bolshevism, etc. It also includes photos of wounded and dead as a result of Bolshevik atrocities, accusing Jews of orchestrating the horrors. The conclusion the author tries to lead the reader to is that Hitler is the savior from all the injustices described, and Nazi Germany has come to restore the world order in its entirety. On the cover is the image of German-Jewish philosopher Moses Mendelssohn, father of the Jewish Enlightenment movement.
