Abstract:

Pt. 3 (pp. 161-180), "Musikkritik und Antisemitismus", deals with increasing criticism by German music experts of non-German tendencies in German music of the 1920s in Leipzig, designating them as atonal, "avant-garde", and "Jewish". Pt. 4 (pp. 183-261), "Sukzessive Entrechtung und Verfolgung im NS-Staat: Emigration, Jüdischer Kulturbund, Konzentrationslager", relates the successive deprivation of the rights of Jews and their persecution, which became perceptible in the field of music around 1930. Musicians were dismissed from their positions on short notice and excluded from public cultural life. Many chose to emigrate; those who stayed were organized in Jewish cultural associations, which held concerts with an almost exclusively Jewish repertoire until 1938. Among Leipzig's residents who were deported to Theresienstadt there were many musicians who were forced to perform there for Nazi propaganda purposes.
