A difficult legacy: the Czech-German composer Hans Winterberg (1901-1991)

After WW I the Austro-Hungarian Empire broke apart and in 1918 the Czchoslovak Republic was founded. 9 million Czechs ans Slovaks and 3 million Germans lived within its borders. Not all of them wanted to become Czchoslovak citizens. Viktor Ullmann remained Austrian, whereas Hans Wintergberg's family chose the Czech citizenship, although they were Jewish and spoke German. In 1944, Winterberg was divorced from his non-Jewish wife and subsequently he was deported to Terezin. After the war he settled in Bavaria.
Peter Kreitmeir, the composer's grandson, talks with Albrecht Dümling about Winterberg's difficult legacy and the recent rediscovery of his music.
