In nazi-era Germany specialized "scientists" and "doctors" tried to fathom scientifically who belonged to the master race and who didn't. True science would have quickly revealed the corruption of this concept, but said thugs in medical attire just made up criteria from thin air and forced them on anybody under their thumb. They did so for instance by creating busts like this one from members of the populace at large, only to classify them according to their delusions. This piece for instance had them think the lady depicted was of profoundly "nordic" origin. Unbeknownst to them she was Jewish.

The bust can be seen at the Hällisch-Fränkische Museum in Schwäbisch Hall/Germany. Schwäbisch Hall, a town of approx. 30.000 in the German state of Baden-Württemberg is home to a remarkable museum about its history - going all the way from the stone age to the very present. Definitely worth a visit.
