The era is pre World War II when Berlin was referred to as “the nightclub” capital of the world. Enjoy the “three ring circus atmosphere of the “Cabaret” with its singers and dancers from all over seen by the sarcastic host. Listen to the sounds of jazz and swing, imported from America and Britain, in smoke filled nightclubs as the German youth known as the “Swing Kids” dance. Germany and its youth are enjoying life. Personal freedom is still available to experience, it is a relaxed time, and an accepting time when race does not play a prominent role in day to day life.
Now travel forward to the time that Hitler has gained power the National Socialist Party is in place and the Hitler Youth is the group to join. Jazz is banned by the government, its melodic note instills a feeling of freedom and chaos and the artists are of questionable race based on the “Nuremberg Laws” of 1935.
