Auch vor sittlichem Niedergang braucht man nicht gleich zu sprechen. ” Mit den 41 erotischen Reigentänzen mag endlich Schluß gemacht werden. Although the legal proceedings against Reigen ended in 1921, the controversy over selling the text continued, as the flyer (see figure 5) indicates. Schnitzler did not believe that objections to Reigen would last for 42 long. In a letter of February 17, 1921, to Stefan Grossmann he wrote: Nach einigen Jahren bleibt von all dem Lärm nichts weiter übrig als die Bücher, die ich geschrieben, und eine dunkle Erinnerung an die Bla43 mage meiner Gegner.

Wir sind doch schließlich Deutsche! . diese Saujuden . . diese Bande . . dieser jüdische Direktor . . die Juden muß man alle ausräuchern . . dieses Gesindel . . ” Moreover, Reigen became a propaganda tool in order to attract people to the meetings of the National Socialists. The leaflet below, distributed by the Nazis in 1921, is interesting because it was directed to the workers and the proletariat. The place where the meeting was held was Haverlands Festsäle in the Neue Friedrichstraße, a section of Berlin located in a working-class neighborhood — the proletariat resided primarily in Berlin-Wedding.

About Schnitzler’s influence on her development as an intellectual Beckermann writes in her essay “Jean Améry and Austria’”: First came Schnitzler and Zweig. Also, they were secret allies against the daily infamy of the old and young, against the crucifix on the classroom wall and the rod in the bag.
