Berlin, 1933 – 1945: … of populism, manipulation, compromises and civil disobedience – in 1933 jazz was actually on the index! The music was defamed according to all the rules of racism. Nevertheless, she was an integral part of the Berlin entertainment! Never banned comprehensively, here even officially supported, somehow there was confusion. What strategies did the regime pursue? And how could a jazz life look like in the circumstances?
Especially in the New West the Swings and their dance shaped the picture. Who were they and what did all this mean? The jazz tour is looking for explanations.
