This chapter examines the political aspects of the works of Jewish composers. It explains that the vast majority of secular Jewish composers and writers were resolutely anti-religion and discusses the work of Hanns Eisler, who used music as a political weapon which would be a defining element in Weimar Germany. The chapter also highlights the emergence of Berlin Cabaret during this period and describes some of the most memorable ones, including those composed by Friedrich Hollander.

Keywords:   Jewish composers, political aspects, anti-religion, Hanns Eisler, Weimar Germany, Berlin Cabaret, Friedrich Hollander
