The City Without Jews, an Austrian silent feature film from 1924, has been rediscovered and restored. It is available for home viewing with a musical score on Blu-ray and DVD through Flicker Alley. The title is a shocker, especially coming several years before Hitler’s rise to power and well more than a decade before the Holocaust. But anti-Semitism didn’t originate with the Nazis; it’s ages old. In this story, the Jewish population is expelled from a fictional version of Vienna. The head councilor is warned ahead of time, “Abandon your project! Inhumanity doesn’t make for good politics.” Now, to my mind, that is a warning that has never grown stale.
