The anti-semitic "Degenerate Art" exhibition opened in Munich in July 1937 and displayed some 650 works of approximately 100 artists which were confiscated from museums and galleries throughout Germany, in order to make them a public mockery. The exhibition traveled through a number of cities in Germany until 1941, and propaganda material such as booklets, postcards and posters were printed before each exhibition to accompany the anti-semitic atmosphere, as part of the Nazi propaganda. Over two million people visited the exhibition during the years it was exhibited.
