Descriptive Summary

Title: Antisemitic Literature Collection
Dates:undated, 1869-1993
Abstract: The Anti-Semitic Literature Collection documents journalistic source materials (newspapers, newsletters, and illustrations) regarding views of anti-Semitism in the United States during the 20th-century. A few items from the 19th-century are included, particularly illustrations from Puck, Vanity Fair, and The Judge. Items are from various periodicals (i.e., The Dearborn Independent, Common Sense, The Crusader, The White American), organizations (i.e., American Nazi Party, the Christian Educational Association, and the White Party of America), and by many different authors (i.e., Father C.E. Coughlin, Benjamin Freedman, Otto H.F. Vollbehr). Additionally, this collection contains responses by American organizations to American and European anti-Semitism as well as documentation on the reaction of anti-Semitism in Canada.
Languages:This collection is in English, Yiddish, German, French, Spanish, and Italian.

Scope and Content Note

The Antisemitic Literature Collection contains publications and illustrations related primarily to the subject of antisemitism in the United States in the twentieth century. The materials were collected over several decades primarily by Nathan Kaganoff, librarian of the American Jewish Historical Society, who organized them into series. The bulk of materials are in English and in good condition. Original order was maintained wherever possible. The collection contains a broad range of items, much but not all of which is overtly "anti-Semitic." 1 In some publications and organizational literature, Jews are the exclusive targets of hostility. In other materials, Jews are but one of many groups subjected to published diatribes. Attacks on Jews appear frequently in the context of anti-Communist, anti-capitalist, anti-Zionist, and anti-immigrant literature. In still other items included in this collection, Jews are not mentioned specifically (for example, in attacks on Catholics or African-Americans). One can conclude that Kaganoff included such material which, even if not explicitly anti-Semitic, reflected views often associated with or sympathetic to anti-Semitism. A similarly broad range of materials characterizes the illustrations in this collection, from turn-of-the century caricatures of prominent English Jews to scathing visual critiques of European Jewish immigration.

Container List

The following section contains a detailed listing of the materials in the collection.

 

Series I: Periodical Publications, undated, 1920-1982

16.95 linear feet. Boxes 1-15, OS2 34, 36-42
Arrangement:

Arranged alphabetically by publication title.

Scope and Content:

Series I: Periodical Publications contains more than one-hundred newsletters and newspapers which express either explicitly antisemitic views or ideas often associated with antisemitism. The items in this series represent a range of political ideologies and agendas, for example: white supremacy, neo-Nazism, anti-Zionism, anti-Communism, anti-Capitalism, and anti-internationalism. Several publications profess "patriotic" missions, expressing views which might be associated with contemporary right-wing militias. Still others identify themselves with Christian interests, claiming to defend the faith of "true" believers and Americans. Of special interest are original copies of The Dearborn Independent (Box 38, Folder 373) in which Henry Ford reprinted The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. Researchers studying the evolution of antisemitic thought in the post-World War II period should also see issues of Common Sense (Box 2, Folder 24; OS2 Box 34, Folder 340; Boxes 36-38, Folders 358-370) and The Cross and the Flag (Boxes 3-6, Folders 27-40) which span the mid-1940s through the 1970s.

Series II: Antisemitic Material by Organization, undated, 1919-1989

3.45 linear feet
Arrangement:

Arranged alphabetically by organization name.

Scope and Content:

Series II. Antisemitic Material by Organization includes flyers, pamphlets, newsletters, speeches, press releases, photographs, correspondence, and other printed matter produced by various organizations either associated with or explicitly professing antisemitism. As with Series I, groups range from fascist organizations, such as the American Nazi Party ( Box 16, Folder 138; Box 42, Folder 406) to self-proclaimed patriotic organizations, such as the National Patrick Henry Organization (Box 18, Folder 206). Several Holocaust denial organizations are also represented here, such as the Committee for Open Debate on the Holocaust ( Box 17, Folder 163). While most groups represented in this series are based in the United States, a few are European. Scholars interested in domestic antisemitism during World War II should note materials documenting German Day at Madison Square Garden in 1935, to be found in the Vereinigte Deutsche Gesellschaften materials (Box 19, Folder 232). Also noteworthy are materials that invoke medieval accusations against Jews, such as a pamphlet published by the National Social Worker's Party regarding Jewish ritual murder laws ( Box 18, Folder 209) and a flyer put out by the National States Rights Party claiming to "unmask" the Talmud (Box 18, Folder 212). Finally, this series also includes newspaper reports of the Grand Union Hotel incident of 1877 in the file on the American Society for Suppressing the Jewish Race ( Box 16, Folder 139). This incident revolved around the hotel's refusal to admit a prominent banker, Joseph Seligman, as a guest because he was Jewish.
