Jewish Art Will Thrive Says Reinhardt

Download PDF for this date

Max Reinhardt, famous German Jewish theatrical producer, in a message from his Continental retreat to the Sunday Chronicle here, predicts a new era in Jewish contributions to art as a result of the present persecutions of the Jews in Germany.

“The Jews will rise again in Germany,” Professor Reinhardt declared. “They have tried to kill us, torture us and have imprisoned us, but that has been our eternal fate. The Jews will rise agin. In ten years time our people will look back on the present period and remember it as the time when Jewish art in Germany began to flourish again. In the Middle Ages, the Jew flourished on misery. When cruelties were worst, the Jew made his finest songs.”
