Abstract provided by Publisher
The paper describes the process of the development of Nazi policy towards the artistic
circles related to music. The growth of the Third Reich and the rising power of the German army was accompanied with the protection of the artists who were directly supporting
Nazism or who were considered important for the German culture, as manifested in the
so-called prevention lists. Certain artists particularly favored by the Nazi establishment
tried to hide that stage of their activity. One of them was the conductor Karl August Böhm
(1894–1981) whose carrier, started under the Nazi auspices, continued successfully after
the Second World War. The paper presents the most important of those people whom
Adolf Hitler considered “chosen by God” and having a special mission to support the
Third Reich.
