The Eternal Jew was the title of an exhibition of degenerate art displayed at the Library of the German Museum in Munich from November 8, 1937 to January 31, 1938.[1] Attendance of over two million visitors was recorded.[2]

Although this was the most famous National Socialist-sponsored exhibition of Degenerate Art, it was preceded by a number of other exhibitions in cities such as Mannheim, Karlsruhe, Dresden, Munich, Berlin and Vienna. The works of art displayed at these exhibitions generally consisted of works executed by avant-garde artists who had become recognized and esteemed in the 1920s.

After the exhibition ended in Munich, it was displayed in Vienna from August 2 through October 23, 1938, and subsequently in Berlin from November 12, 1938 through January 31, 1939.[1]
