The outstanding reputation of the Schauspielhaus Zurich is based on artists in exile during the Nazi era, such as Brecht and Giese. It became a centre of cultural resistance against fascism in Europe. After the war, the theatre established itself with Frisch and Dürrenmatt and modern American authors. It was forgotten that this was thanks to a German Jew: Kurt Hirschfeld.
