Abstract:

Discusses Richard Wagner's antisemitic writings and statements; the connections between Hitler and Cosima Wagner, Houston Stewart Chamberlain, Alfred Rosenberg, Winifred Wagner, and Joseph Goebbels; artistic freedom as defined in the German constitution; and examples of antisemitism in Wagner's operas. Argues that there is a clear connection between Wagner and Bayreuth and Nazi antisemitism, because Wagner and Bayreuth played an important role in attracting the cultured German middle class to antisemitism. Wagner also served as a major inspiration for Hitler. As Wagner's family became involved with antisemitism, the line from Wagner to Hitler continued uninterrupted. Argues that the performance of Wagner's operas should be prohibited in Germany, as they are directly associated with Hitler and Nazi Germany. The German state should not go on paying German theaters hundred of millions of euros in subventions for staging productions which highlight Wagner's and Hitler's antisemitism.
