Hate on Paper

As part of the Festival of Tolerance in Sarajevo, Mirko Ilic organized the opening of the “Antimasonic Posters from 1941-42” Show in Sarajevo at the Galerija 11/07/95 from Oct 24 until November 4th. Anti-semitic caricatures haven’t lost their potency. There are 17 posters in the show. These hate posters were created to announce the Nazi anti-masonic show in Belgrade in 1941. They were part of the German Nazi anti-masonic and anti-Jewish propaganda. Ilic also designed the poster.
