Jewish type

The famous medieval hand called “Fratkura”, or “Fraktur”, was the main typeface of Germany press until the beginning of xx century.

After some backdown in the beginning of xx century (European advertisements brought Roman typefaces to Germany), it was proclaimed by Hitler that Fraktur was the “the true nordic hand” and was the only appropriate letter form for the German language. But in the 40s it was officialy determined that Fraktur interfered with the German plan of world domination, since outside the Germany Roman forms prevailed. The Nazis had switched to Roman faces, and Bormann issued a proclamation that Fraktur was a “Schwabacher-Jewish type”.
