Pair of bizarre Third Reich-era anti-Semitic texts, includes: "Rasputin: Ein Werkzeug der Juden" ("Rasputin: A Tool of the Jews"), by Dr. Rudolf Kummer (Nuremberg: Der Sturmer Buchverlag), 1942, 208pp. 8vo, a biography of Russian mystic and con-man GRIGORI RASPUTIN (1869-1916), who befriended the family of Tsar Nicholas II and gained considerable influence in the government, while making the claim that he ingratiated himself with the royals at the behest of Jewish interests. The cover of the book is illustrated with a Russian Orthodox cross within a Star of David. Shows minor bumps to the corners and slight splitting to the spine covering, else very good. WITH: "Der Zar, Der Zauberer Und Die Juden" ("The Czar, the Magician and the Jews"), by Werner Gruehn, (Berlin: Nibelungen-Verlag), 1942, 293pp. 8vo., purported to be a memoir of Rasputin's "secret secretary", presenting the same conspiratorial pabulum as the above example, adding several images of Rasputin, the Romanovs, Russian Jews, etc. The binding is slightly loose in places, else very good. Two pieces.
ANTI-SEMITIC PUBLICATIONS PAINT RASPUTIN AS A JEWISH PLANT
