Deportation of the Jews
This map tries to show, with arrows and symbols, the deportation of the Jews out of Central Europe.  However, the reader first sees a long line leading from Palestine to Lithuania through Maghreb, Spain, and Germany and a smaller line leading to Italy. Western Europe is also spangled with Stars of David, as if the author wanted to point out the importance of Jewish faith in Europe.

In fact, the Jewish religion was always a minority in Europe and widely repressed.
