In 1933, thousands of Jewish musicians in Berlin suddenly found themselves unemployed. At this time, Jews were also forbidden to attend concerts. In response, Dr. Kurt Singer negotiated with the new Nazi government to allow for a theater where Jews would perform for Jews. The Judische Kulturbund (Jewish Cultural Federation) extended to other cities and became wildly successful with some 180,000 subscribers. This course tells the story of this organization and explores what can happen when disinformation and gradual exclusion reach extreme proportions.
