‘My Verses are Like Dynamite:’ Curt Bloch’s ‘Het Onderwater Cabaret’

Hosted By: The Fritz Ascher Society for Persecuted, Ostracized and Banned Art

Under threat from Nazi antisemitism, the young Jewish lawyer Curt Bloch (1908–1975) fled Dortmund for the Netherlands in 1933. He went into hiding there in 1942 and emigrated to the United States after the war. In his hiding place, from August 1943 to April 1945, Bloch produced a magazine with the telling title “Het Onderwater Cabaret”—“The Underwater Cabaret.”
