1940 - The Black Album (Ha-albom ha-shahor) - Early Holocaust Images
The Black Album (Ha-albom ha-shahor). Tel Aviv: The Anti-Nazi League, 1940.
Booklet of postcards. 6.5” x 4.25”. Complete with all ten postcards. Text in Hebrew, English, and French; postcard captions in English. Minor soilingto the cover. Text and cards are lightly toned. Three of the postcards are separated along their perforations and are laid-in the booklet.
This paperback booklet of postcards published by the Anti-Nazi League of Tel Aviv was a very early—said by some to be the earliest—depiction of Nazi atrocities against the Jews. As noted in the album’s introduction, the postcards were intended to publicize Nazi barbarism,
"The most tragic thing is that people aren't paying attention to this horrifying information from Poland...that's why the Anti-Nazi League in Palestine took upon itself the task of breaking the apathy of the world community to these events . . . by the representatives of Satan, in an appropriate manner."
Each postcard includes the text: "Send this card to everyone you know in the world and participate in the disclosure of the Nazi crimes,” and each reproduces a captioned photograph such as "Death in the wake of Hitler,” "The work of Nazi hangmen,” "The Nazi murderers enjoy themselves," etc.

OCLC shows only four examples are held by institutions; two in the United States and two in Europe, however, the two in the United States are identified as later printings.

PayPal is preferred for bothUS and international payments.
Other methods of payment may be possible.Shipping Domestic Shipping. Most orders are shipped to locations in the US at no additional cost. If not, shipping costs are set at a flat rate on an item-by-item basis. Media mail shipping--when available and appropriate--is inexpensive but may take between two and four weeks, especially if delivery is to the west coast. If a quick delivery is important to you, please request USPS Priority Mail or some other expedited delivery service before paying.
International Shipping. International shipping is usually done through the Global Shipping Program. I know that this can be expensive, but I've switched to this method because I've had too many claims of non-receipt by international buyers. If you contact me in advance of purchase it may be possible for me to ship directly to you.
If I ship directly, I will only ship overseas using a trackable method; this can be expensive, and it is non-negotiable. Also, I will only enter true information on customs forms; if you have a problem paying your nation's customs fees, that is beteen you and your government, I have nothing to do with it.
If you pay by PayPal, I will only ship to the shipping address specified by PayPal.
All shipments are covered by my business insurance at my expense, however if you would like to purchase additional USPS insurance at your expense, let me know, and I'll adjust your invoice accordingly.
