[Russian Antisemitism] Group of Fifteen Right-Wing Monarchist Propaganda Postcards

[1911]. Item #846

A historically significant collection of 15 postcards from the early 20th century, crafted by Luka Timofeevich Zlotnikov, a renowned Russian artist recognized for his anti-Semitic caricature propaganda. These postcards are part of a controversial series known for their anti-Semitic and anti-Bolshevik imagery, reflecting the turbulent social and political undercurrents of pre-revolutionary Russia. They are characterized by exaggerated and stereotypical portrayals that were unfortunately common in the propaganda of the era. These postcards hold significance for historians, museums, and educational institutions studying the propagation of ideology through art and media. The postcards vary in condition, with some showing signs of age such as foxing, minor tears, and wear consistent with paper items over a century old. However, overall, they remain in very good condition.

Luka Timofeevich Zlotnikov (1878-1918) was a Russian artist and journalist, known for his contributions as a caricaturist in right-wing newspapers under the pseudonym "Zlo." He gained recognition for releasing five albums of caricatures and drawings in 1908. In 1911, he founded the satirical magazine "Pauk," focused on "the struggle against Judaism," though it ceased publication in 1913 due to censorship constraints. Zlotnikov also collaborated with newspapers like "Zemshchina," "Veche," "Vittova Pliaska," and the magazine "Pliuvium." Notably, he created the cover for the tenth volume of the "Book of Russian Sorrow" at the request of the Union of the Russian People in January 1912.

Zlotnikov's involvement in the Beilis case saw him travel to Kiev, where he obtained and republished a brochure by Father Justin Pranaitis titled "The Secret of the Blood in Jews" in Petrograd. Additionally, he was an active member of the "Society for the Study of the Jewish Tribe" in 1914, illustrating the society's brochures. Before the outbreak of World War I, he delivered lectures on "The Jew in Art" and later volunteered for service, working as an artist for the Trophy Commission of the Imperial Military Campaign Office.

Following the February Revolution, Zlotnikov faced arrest but was soon released. However, his right-wing monarchist affiliations led to his eventual execution in 1918 on charges related to his involvement with the fictitious organization "Kamorra of Popular Retribution." He had authored a proclamation under this guise, ultimately resulting in the arrest and execution of a group of monarchists by the Chekists.
