The Autograph comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Adolf von Sonnenthal (1834-1909), Austrian actor, was born of Jewish parentage in Budapest.

He made his first appearance at Temesvar in 1851, and after engagements at Hermannstadt and Graz came in the winter of 1855-1856 to Koenigsberg in Prussia. His first performance was so successful that he was engaged by Heinrich Laube for the Burgtheater in Vienna, making his first appearance as Mortimer in Schiller’s Maria Stuart.

Under Laube’s careful tuition he developed within three years into an actor of the first order, excelling both in tragedy and comedy; and in 1882, after twenty-five years of brilliant service at the Court Theatre, he was given a patent of nobility.

In 1884 he became manager-in-chief of the theatre; and in 1887-1888 acted as artistic advisor. He visited the United States in 1885, and again in 1899 and 1902, achieving great success.

His chief parts were Nathan in Lessing’s Nathan der Weise, Wallenstein, and Der Meister von Palmyra.

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 ).
