Rasputin: Tool of the Jews

DATE
Year: 1942
Decade: 1940s
Century: 20th (1901-2000)

Bizarre anti-Semitic publication, “Rasputin: Ein Werkzeug der Juden” (“Rasputin: A Tool of the Jews”), by Dr. Rudolf Kummer (Nuremberg: Der Sturmer Buchverlag).

The book provides a biography of Russian mystic and con-man GrigoriI Rasputin (1869-1916), who befriended the family of Tsar Nicholas II and gained considerable influence in the government, while making the claim that he ingratiated himself with the royals at the behest of Jewish interests. The cover of the book is illustrated with a Russian Orthodox cross within a Star of David.
