A missed parallel
8 September 2018
Suppression of intellectuals and artists by the growth of Nazism, from Zweig's perspective particularly with regard to the encroachment of Nazism across Austria's borders, may have been right wing suppression but, strangely, there was little direct mention of the left wing's parallel suppression of intellectuals in Soviet Russia.
However, the damage wreaked on art and creative freedom by nationalism is well focused.
