Size: 8,5 x 6,5 x 3 inches.

Marie-Louise Sarre lived in Berlin before World War II. Her friends called her “Puppi,” meaning “small doll” in German. She didn’t have much of a doll when she became active in the German resistance against Hitler. In the summer of 1944 she was involved in a scheme to secure the support of none other than Heinrich Himmler in a plan to assassinate Hitler.

After the failed coup attempt of July 20, 1944, she and many others were arrested and imprisoned by the Gestapo. She managed to escape and fled to Ascona, Switzerland, where she lived until her death at age 95, in 1999.

Her father was Friedrich Sarre, the first director of the Department of Islamic Art at the Kaiser Friedrich Museum (today’s Bode Museum) in Berlin. Her maternal grandfather was Carl Humann, the discoverer and excavator of the Pergamum Altar in Turkey in the 1880s.

Her father also was member of The Solf Circle (German: Solf-Kreis) which was an informal gathering of German intellectuals involved in the resistance against Nazi Germany. Most members were arrested and executed after attending a tea party held near Heidelberg on September 10, 1943, at the residence of Elisabeth von Thadden. The group’s downfall also ultimately led to the demise of the Abwehr in February 1944.

Anti – Semitic “Der Ewige Jude” Postcard. 1938 Vienna Exposition type, commemorative cancellation.

Very good condition.

This Viennese style has the “gold” shekels and “gold” map of greater Germany. This is the more rare and the more desirable of the two known styles. Lithograph 4 x 6 inches. DHM, Berlin Pk 96/416.

The movie Der ewige Jude ( ” The Eternal Jew ” ) is the most famous Nazi propaganda film. It was produced at the insistence of Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels.

The movie disses the Jews of Poland as corrupt, filthy, lazy, ugly, and perverse: they are denounced as alien people who would have taken over the world through their control of banking and commerce, yet which still would live like animals.

The exhibition which has been organized by the Nazis in 1937, was of virulent Anti Jewish content and was held in Munich ( November 8, 1937, and ended on January 31 1938 ), Wien ( August 2 through October 23, ) and Berlin ( November 12, 1938 through January 31, 1939 ).
