On 18 March 1938, Méxi­co filed a for­mal pro­test note to the League of Nati­ons in Gene­va to pro­test — as sole coun­try — against the “Anschluss”, the annexa­ti­on of Aus­tria into Nazi Ger­ma­ny on 12 March 1938.

Bru­no Wal­ter first per­for­med it in Vien­na in Febru­ary 1938 and asked Dr. Men­gel­berg, the direc­tor of Con­cert­ge­bouw Ams­ter­dam, if he could con­duct Pros­pe­ro ins­te­ad of “Tod und Ver­klä­rung” by Richard Strauss. Dr. Men­gel­berg invi­ted him to do so, and Bru­no Wal­ter and Egon Wel­lesz went to Ams­ter­dam. The […]
