Forbidden Music

Michael Haas

Yale University Press

This chapter examines the conditions of Jewish composers after World War I. It discusses the music policies in Adolf Hitler's Germany, the Aryanization of music publishers, and the removal of Jews and their works from the repertoire, which meant breaking countless contracts that would have led to costly court actions. The chapter also suggests that anti-Semitic purges were the result of the view that the Jews represented political opposition to the strong economic and political agenda the Nazis felt had been mandated by the German electorate.

Keywords:   Jewish composers, World War I, music policies, Adolf Hitler, music publishers, Aryanization, anti-Semitic purges, Nazis
