An antisemitic caricature of the Yellow Badge.

Yad Vashem

Caption: "A description of a Jewish mischief or the yellow badge; 1) If someone is wondering why Jews must wear a badge, I shall explain: 2) mostly because they belong to the devil and signs like that are found on them, and they always shout Oh-Oh with no reason. 3) I wish the non-believer Jews to disappear. 4) They want to destroy the Christians and us with their tricks, and we must overcome them patiently. Their tricks get back at them, which proves they are nothing compare to the Christians".
