More Information

Schmalz is a Jewish term for rendered chicken fat, although in German the word can also mean rendered pig or goose fat. Schmalz is used for frying or as a spread on bread in Jewish, German and Polish cuisine. This horrific image was on the magazine’s back cover. Inside was an article comparing the availability and prices of food in Germany and the Soviet Union.
