A disturbing and quite rare publication entitled Der Untermensch ("The Sub-Human"), (Berlin: Norland Verlag, [1942]) un-paginated, [52pp.] folio, titled paper wraps. The introduction opens with a quote from Himmler and explains that certain populations are so biologically inferior to even average humans that they are virtually incapable of understanding how different they are from the remainder of humanity. According to this publication, "Der Untermensch" knows nothing of culture, the plow, factory machinery or even something as basic as a house. The publication is copiously illustrated with contrasting photographs of Germans in idyllic, pastoral scenes contrasted with the worst poverty Eastern Europe had to offer and of course includes the obligatory passages accusing Jews of running the world. It ends with a stern warning of what would happen if these 'sub-humans' were allowed to breed: doom for Germany. Extant editions of this piece are quite rare as these virulently anti-Semitic publications were targeted for destruction by Allied denazifiction teams after the war. Covers split, worn and chipped at spine, front cover bears a few tears, soiled overall but in generally better condition than usually seen.
