De expressionistic film Die Stadt ohne Juden from 1924 was considered lost for many years, until a copy was found in 2015 at a flea market in Paris. The film about the advent of fascism is uncomfortably topical these days. The celebrated Austrian composer Olga Neuwirth wrote a new soundtrack for the movie that will be played live with the screening of the movie.

Neuwirth refers to the words of author and holocaust survivor Primo Levi: “If it happens once, it can happen again”. In Die Stadt ohne Juden, the newly elected Austrian chancellor remarks that anti-Semitism seems to sit well with ‘the people’ and decides to deport all Jews from Vienna. The movie by H.K Breslauer was based on the book of the same name by Hugo Bettauer from 1922 that was intended as a satire on prevailing anti-Semitism in those days. However, events took a different turn: Bettauer was murdered shortly after the movie’s premiere and his satire turned out to be a terrifying vision of the near future.
