In his speeches and essays Stefan Zweig attempts to convince his audience in the time of National Socialism that solidarity within the Jewish community is the only saving attitude for the people. In an atmosphere of racist defamation where the feeling of minority is already imposed on children, where young people are denied any possibilities of development and Jewish citizens are driven to ruin and hate by laws violating human rights, the people have no future. It is Zweig’s conviction that an authorized representation of the people must be elected and the question of a future home must be clarified.
