Nazi actor’s Berlin show

Here’s a small article from the December 9 1950 edition of the Toronto Daily Star:


Werner Krauss (1884-1959) was not only “Nazi-favored” – he was openly anti-Semitic, and a wholehearted supporter of the Nazi Party. Among other things, he simultaneously played six Jewish stereotypes in an anti-Jewish propaganda film. Eventually, he was forgiven enough that he was invited to German film festivals.

Curt Reiss (1902-1993), mentioned in the body of the article, was a Nazi refugee who became an American war correspondent. He has a Wikipedia page, but it’s in German.
