Inhaltsangabe: Hitler’s List was a long one. There was to be no place in the new Nazi Reich for anybody or anything that threatened the purity of his vision. Being an artist himself, he knew beyond doubt that abstract art was ‘degenerate’. And modern design, jazz, atonal music, psychotherapy, Marxism, or quantum physics. These things were a sign of ‘Jewish infection’ of the pure body of Aryan culture – or they were ‘bolshevist’, which amounted to the same thing. So the culture needed to be ‘cleansed’ of the people who practised them.
Most people with lists like Hitler’s never get the chance to take them further than the nearest psychiatric ward, but his obsessions were unleashed on a civilisation.
Einstein, Freud, Chagall, Brecht, Schoenberg, Klemperer, Koestler, Kandinsky, Primo Levi, Thomas Mann, Billy Wilder, Paul Klee, Max Ernst, Walter Benjamin, Erich Fromm, Lise Meitner, Karl Popper, Hannah Arendt, Django Reinhardt, Fritz Lang, Roman Polanski, Lotte Lenya, Kurt Weill... all were on Hitler’s List. They and their work survived, and thrived, because Hitler – ultimately – didn’t. But other great talents lost everything: their jobs, their reputations, their lives. This book of portraits and life-stories is a tribute
to all these ‘undesirables’ and their genius.
