The highly talented Eduard Künneke is known above all as a German operetta composer. The operetta Der Vetter aus Dingsda (1921) became his most famous work. Since he had not exactly experienced positive things in the United States, he evidently was not so eager to go into exile. As a result, during the Nazi era he became known as the Master of the German Operetta, even though he hardly made concessions to the regime and repeatedly ran into trouble because he refused to separate from his half-Jewish wife Katarina.
