Fuhrer Cult and Megalomania

Loading...
Even today it is possible to see signs in Nuremberg of the megalomaniac proportions that the system was to assume. In such areas, the individual was worthless and nothing more than a minute ornament. According to experts, this state and party rally architecture was also a symbol of Hitler's determination to achieve world domination. Rare footage of the construction work was used for this documentary. A previously unknown amateur film even shows the land in color in 1936.

Wagner's Jews

Loading...
German composer Richard Wagner was notoriously anti-Semitic, and his writings on Jews were later embraced by Hitler and the Nazis. But there is another, lesser-known side to this story. For years, many of Wagner's closest associates were Jews - young musicians who became personally devoted to him, and provided crucial help to his work and career. They included the teenaged piano prodigy Carl Tausig, Hermann Levi, a rabbi's son who conducted the premiere of Wagner's Parsifal, Angelo Neumann, who produced Wagner's works throughout Europe, and Joseph Rubinstein, a pianist who lived with the Wagner family for years and committed suicide when Wagner died. Even as Wagner called for the elimination of the Jews from German life, many of his most active supporters were Jewish. Why were they d [...]
