Israel hate up close and personal

by Petra Marquardt, blogs.jpost.com, Jun. 30, 2014

Click here for review of Nora Gold’s book “Fields of Exile”

Editor’s note: the article refers to “Juden Raus”…here is Wikipedia’s explanation:

Juden Raus! (1936)[edit]

Juden Raus (“Jews out”) is a Cross and Circle-style game published in Germany by Günther & Co. in 1936, just one year after the Nuremberg Laws were put into effect. The game was advertised as “entertaining, instructive and solidly constructed.”[2] The game’s equipment includes a pair of dice, a game board, and several game piece figurines with large pointed hats meant to represent Jews.[3]

Players take turns rolling the dice and moving their “Jews” across the map toward “collection points” outside the city walls for deportation to Mandate Palestine.[4]Written on the game board, it says “If you manage to see off 6 Jews, you’ve won a clear victory!”[3]

Juden Raus was not an official Nazi propaganda effort but an unsuccessful commercial product. The game was criticized by an SS journal that felt it trivialized anti-Semitic policies.[5]
