"Pivotal Moments In History, Starring A. Hitler" (Jamming with Aleksandar Zograf

There's a description of the story in R.J. Carter's review at :

"Pivotal Moments In History, Starring A. Hitler," was a tale I initially found more than a little disconcerting. In it, artists Wostok and Zograf illustrate a young Adolph bear witness to the humiliation of his impoverished mother at the words of 'Mr. Jewish,' the neighbor from down the hall. Mr. Jewish is every Jewish stereotype rolled up and overblown to the point of lampoon. Charles Alverson (co-screenwriter of Jabberwocky and Brazil) uses humor that, if not entirely black, requires that we create a whole new shade of dark, to illustrate how people can generalize from a single instant and apply that generalization to an entire class of people.
