In the 1930s in Germany, anti-semitism was all-pervasive, and part of that can be attributed to pop culture. A commercially successful board game for example called "Juden Raus" (Out With The Jews) became a pastime of German families. Ben Barkow of the world's oldest holocaust museum, the Wiener Library in London has a copy of the game in their archives and explains to anchor Lisa Mullins.
