An exploration of the life and times of Austrian-Jewish composer, Hans Gal, in the wider context of persecution of musicians under the Nazi regime. The exhibition at The Wiener Library features original documents and images related to Gal's life. Gal fled Germany in the 1930s to avoid persecution after his music was banned, and even spent part of the Second World War interned in the UK because of his nationality.

 

About The Wiener Library

The library also hosts a regular programme of small exhibitions looking at issues surrounding the Nazi regime and the Holocaust, as well as pursuing universal themes of persecution and genocide.
