Footnotes

1 After the February Uprising of 1934, the office of the Federal Chancellor organized a charitable fund on behalf of the "victims of the executive," and used the press to summon the public to contribute to it; see the Neue freie Presse, No. 24938, February 16, 1934, morning edition, p. 2.

2 See diary entry for February 2, which records Schenker’s receipt of a program from the "Stadtseminar" in Freiburg im Breisgau. The term "Stadtseminar" presumably refers to the courses founded there by Erich Doflein in 1926 in music-theoretical training and general musical education for laymen.
