The remarkable and poignant story of the Comedian Harmonists, an early 1930s German singing group that was forced by the Nazis to disband because three of its members were Jewish. The banning of the group, which enjoyed a level of success in Europe similar to the Beatles in the 1960s, was part of the Nazis' attempt to erase all traces of Jewish life and culture from German society - an early aspect of the Holocaust. The book traces the path of the group and its members from their first failed audition to success beyond their imagination.

According to Douglas Friedman's 2010 book The Comedian Harrmonists, in August 1929 both groups appeared on the same bill at the Scala in Berlin and became good friends. The Nazis progressively made the group's professional life more difficult, initially banning pieces by Jewish composers, and finally prohibiting them from performing in public. The group's last concert in Germany was in Hannover on March 25, 1934, after which they sailed to the United States on SS Europa and gave several concerts. Fearing internment if they stayed abroad, however, they eventually returned home amid bitter internal disputes.

If you loved the music and enjoyed their music, the real story of the Comedian Harmonists is captivating. Absent the silly relationship struggles of the movie, which did not occur in real life, it added new dimension to the group, how they started, what they accomplished and answered many questions I had. I loved reading it. I loved the real story and was glad to have found that a book was written on them. Now, if the documentary they made in Germany with the original singers was captioned for American distribution I would love to have that as well!

Interesting story. So sad it had to come to an untimely end, because of anti-semitism and hate.

Exhaustively researched and documented, the author has presented a fascinating history of this acclaimed musical group. This scholarly work is highly readable as the author weaves the stories of the six musicians into the political expediencies of Nazi Germany. This book is must reading not just for those who want to know more about Jews in the arts under the Third Reich, but for those who follow the worldwide development of outstanding vocal groups.
