The excessively rare third of Julius Streicher's notoriously anti-Semitic children's books, The Poodle-Pug-Dachshund-Pinscher, written by Ernst Hiemer, Streicher's Chief Editor at Der Sturmer" who also wrote the text for Der Giftpilz. This hardbound volume, published by Der Sturmer's publishing house in Nuremberg, 1940, is 96pp. 8vo. and bears an imaginary mongrel dog on the cover with line drawings of various other rather disagreeable creatures. The illustrated text compares Jews to unpleasant forms of animal life: drone bees, hyenas, chameleons, coo-coos, locusts, bedbugs, starlings, mongrel dogs, poisonous snakes, tapeworms, and bacteria. The title comes from one of the stories, which focuses on a mongrel dog. Three of the stories end with outright calls to exterminate the Jews. Sample text: "...There are various kinds of poisonous snakes. There are poisonous snakes in the most varied countries in the world. The same is true of the Jews. There are little and big ones, fat and thin ones, black-haired and even blond ones...Just as the snake’s bite poisons the blood of its victims, the Jews poison the blood of their host peoples...Just as the danger of poisonous snakes is eliminated only when one has completely eradicated poisonous snakes, the Jewish question will only be solved when Jewry is destroyed...The doctor advised Mrs. Müller to end her son’s treatment only when she saw the tapeworm’s head. It means nothing if segments of the worm are shed, for they can grow back. It takes a radical cure, continued until the worm is entirely dead...Tapeworms and the Jew are parasites of the worst kind. If we want to free ourselves of them, if we want to be healthy and strong again, there is only one cure: their extermination...It is much the same with the Jew, Many peoples have taken effective measures against the Jewish bacterium. They have passed laws against the Jew! They have driven the Jew from the center of public life! They have forced the Jew to live in special areas (ghettos)! But no people has yet succeeded in fully getting rid of the Jew...We today who are building a new Germany and a new Europe under Adolf Hitler’s leadership will not carry out the final and decisive reckoning with Jewry! No! The final and decisive reckoning with Jewry is reserved for our children and their children...". These texts were so offensive even Nazi-aligned critics responded negatively to their release. Post-war, the Allies issued orders that such material be burned - this copy escaped intact as evidence. Cover bears some scattered marginal stains, interior excellent with a business's ownership stamp on front flyleaf.
