Issue: CARTOONS & ANTISEMITISM VISUAL POLITICS INTERWAR POLAND TP

Description: 2024: Antisemitic caricatures had existed in Polish society since at least the mid-19th-century. But never had the devastating impacts of this imagery been fully realized or so blatantly apparent than on the eve of the Second World War. In Cartoons and Antisemitism: Visual Politics of Interwar Poland, scholar Ewa Stanczyk explores how illustrators conceived of Jewish people in satirical drawing and reflected on the burning political questions of the day. Incorporating hundreds of cartoons, satirical texts, and newspaper articles from the 1930s, Stanczyk investigates how a visual culture that was essentially hostile to Jews penetrated deep and wide into Polish print media. In her sensitive analysis of these sources, the author examines how major satirical magazines intervened in the ongoing events and contributed to the racialized political climate of the time.
