The jewish nose stereotype was so pervasive and ingrained throughout the world that a rock formation in a  marine channel in french indochina was named "Le juif" - "The jew" due to its features that apear like a head with protruding nose When watching it from afar. The title of the postcard bears the name of the channel: 'Chanel de l'Hamelin' and the words 'Le Juif '-' the Jew'. The bay has more than 3000 islets, most of which are made out of limestone. Many are named for their shapes, such as Voi Islet (elephant) and Ga Choi Islet (fighting cock), and, in the postcard before us a "Jewish" nose. Attached another postcard depicting the channel's appearance with a different title without mentioning the word "Le Juif" for illustration.

 3 postcards. 14x9 cm. mailed. Very good condition.
