Sigh, Nazis

Source: Germany, 1933. Photographer: unknown. Shortly after Hitler's election, the Third Reich began passing a series of laws designed to restrict Jewish commerce. Caption reads, "No Jews employed here," indicating that the business is "safe" for Aryans to shop in.


These next two are both from 2014, from an Israeli checkpoint at Ramallah, near a crumbling commercial development mostly occupied by Arab businesses. Photographs are by Jake Blum, a Dutch-Jewish art student:

Text on the second one reads, "Israelis stay safe, don't buy from Arabs!"



Okay, just kidding; here are the real pictures:

(Nazis, 1933, "Germans be safe, don't buy from Jews!"

(Israel, 2014, "No Arabs employed here.")
