?Rat Catcher? depicts Jews as rats being lead by the Pied Piper.

This poster is one in a series of Politischer Bilderbogen [Political Picture Sheets] published by Verlag der Druckerei Glotz, Dresden. They were sold in folded format, with detailed explanatory text and advertisements for others in the series on one side, and the complex image itself on the other. Their broader imagery is combined with reference to the political issues and figures of the day, satirized through the prism of German anti-Semitism.
