The City Without Jews (German: Die Stadt ohne Juden) is a 1924 Austrian Expressionist film by Hans Karl Breslauer, based on the novel of the same title by Hugo Bettauer. It shows the birth of primitive anti-Semitism and points to the dramatic fate of Jews in the near future.
Shortly after the premiere of the film Hugo Bettauer was murdered by a Nazi Party sympathiser.
The film screening will accompany Jewish (Klezmer) music performed live by a Galway-based artist.
