A Sensational Find!
Today, the silent film Die Stadt ohne Juden / The City Without Jews is regarded as one of the most important Austrian productions of the interwar period. Based on the eponymous novel by the Jewish writer and journalist Hugo Bettauer, the film was shot in Vienna in 1924. Disturbingly prophetic, it shows the cultural and economic impoverishment of a city following the expulsion of its Jewish population. The film was only preserved in a fragmentary and, in terms of its content, downplayed version, until the Filmarchiv Austria succeeded in finding the missing parts in France. The quick restoration of the newly discovered nitrate material, which is already showing the first signs of decomposition, has priority. Thus, the Filmarchiv Austria kindly asks the support of the public to help maintaining this cinematic treasure!
