Terezin, "model ghetto",
During the war, small bits of information about the extreme
and horrific episodes perpetrated under the Third Reich reached
an unbelieving world. The Nazis needed to answer the world's
growing concern and yet they wanted to continue implementing
their "solution" to the Jewish Question. The Nazis decided to
use Theresienstadt to solve the growing outside pressure. Through
deceit and subterfuge, the Nazis transformed Theresienstadt
into a "model ghetto."

the outside world.Adapted from the Encyclopedia of the Holocaust.

About Heinrich Porges,
Wagner .... Wagner, Rehearsing
book presents Wagner's view of how the Ring should
He requested Heinrich Porges, a member of
his circle and an able writer as well as an accomplished musician,
to 'follow all my rehearsals very closely and note down everything
I say, even the smallest details, about the interpretation
and performance, so that a tradition goes down in writing'.
In the opinion of the eminent Wagner scholar, Curt von Westernhagen
(expressed in his recent biography), Porges's
conscientious record shows 'amazing insight and perception'
since what distinguishes it is his 'ability always to locate
the endless detail of Wagner's instructions in an overall
The book is therefore required reading
not only for conductors, producers, instrumentalists and singers
but also for musicologists and critics.
In addition it is
a fascinating read for anyone who knows and loves the Ring
since it takes the form of a blow-by-blow commentary on the
stage action as it unfolds.
The writing has vitality and flow
and one is caught up in the spirit of the thing as Wagner
It provides a re-experience of the Ring through his
The Bühnenproben was originally published in the
monthly Bayreuther Blätter in instalments that
were not completed until 1896, when the Ring was first
given again at Bayreuth ; its publication in book form was
equally protracted. Its translation now is a sign of the times.
Wagner in his black moods longed for an 'invisible theatre'.
He did not foresee the electronic revolution that has enabled
countless people to sit comfortably at home, hi-fl equipment
at their elbow, vocal score on their lap, revelling in his
fusion of music and poetry and - guided by his stage directions
- envisaging his 'invisible theatre' in their minds.
Wagner controversy By Lili Eylon.
"When, in 1985, the Richard Wagner Museum in Bayreuth,
Germany, opened an exhibition entitled "Wagner and the Jews",
its organizer, museum director Manfred Eger, said it was a
plea not for Wagner but for the truth.
The truth is that some
Germans, like many Israelis, still cannot "digest" Wagner,
and that the antisemitic composer continues to be an issue
- lukewarm in Germany, hot in Israel.
In his exhibition introduction,
Eger tries to prove that the roots of Hitler's antisemitism
did not have their origins in Wagner.
The exhibition brochure
dwells heavily on Wagner's appreciation of Jewish composers
such as Mendelssohn (his "Hebrides Overture") and Halévy
(his opera "The Jewess").
Eger cites in detail Wagner's friendships
with Jews such as the choirmaster Heinrich Porges and
the conductor Hermann Levi, a rabbi's son." Richard Wagner Tempo Diaries of Cosima Wagner
