SCREENING & DISCUSSION | The City without Jews

The City without Jews was the title of Hugo Bettauer’s 1922 satiric novel in which he described the expulsion of all Jews from Vienna, considered an inconceivable idea at the time. The film adaptation by director Hans Karl Breslauer in 1924, however, was already accompanied by disruptive actions by National Socialists, and Bettauer was shot and killed by a Nazi in 1925. The rise of the National Socialist German Workers’ (Nazi) Party in Austria resulted in the Anschluss (the annexation of Austria into the Third Reich) in 1938. The expulsion and murder of Central European Jews during the Holocaust followed.
