Write The First Customer Review

Historians of South African Jewry have depicted antisemitism in the 1930s and 1940s as essentially an alien phenomenon, a product of Nazi propaganda at a time of great social and economic trauma. Using sources such as novels, plays, caricatures and jokes, Milton Shain argues that the roots of the anti-Jewish outbursts in South Africa in the early 1930s and early 1940s are to be found in a widely-shared negative stereotype of the Jew that had evolved from the late 19th century.
