Professor Erik visits an art gallery with his young son Roger. The boy is most fascinated with the painting of the Guernica, recently created by the painter Picasso as a reaction to the bombing of the Spanish town by German aeroplanes. It is early morning and Erik asks his wife to wake up their son. He then explains to Roger that now they will all have to wear an armlet signifying their Jewish origin. He tries to lighten the situation for the child by suggesting they are all now members of an exclusive club, where they have been accepted thanks to their large noses. Next there will be clubs for people with big ears, or with flat feet. The couple go to a compulsory medical examination, where the arrogant doctor treats them with disrespect. In the meantime, the Roger is cutting out noses from various reproductions of paintings and photographs, and juxtaposing them in different ways in collage style.
