A Nazi Cartoon from 1943 on Lynching in the USA

As I look for one thing, I sometimes come across other interesting material to add to existing pages. Today I’m adding a vivid caricature to the page on Lustige Blätter, a weekly satirical magazine, showing a Black being lynched. Although the Nazis viewed blacks as inferior, they sometimes pointed out contradictions in the United States.

In this case, the suggestion is that the United States is hypocritical in complaining about Nazi treatment of the Jews, given what it does to American Blacks.
