Antisemitic Nazi posters have gone on show in London this week as part of a British Library exhibition on propaganda.

One poster, originally displayed in occupied France in 1943, is titled Behind everything the Jew, while another, from Czechoslovakia, shows a caricature of the Jewish banker exposed by an honest Aryan worker (above). Both examples are from the collection of art dealer Anthony d’Offay.

Ian Cooke, co-curator of the exhibition, said “We often think of Nazi propaganda as clumsy, but it got into the whole of society.”

The display runs until September 17.
