Burning Beethoven

The Eradication of German Culture in the United States during World War I

Before World War I, the United States were home to a flourishing German culture. German-Americans were the biggest and most successful ethnic group all over the Midwest. But this culture was wiped out forever by a fury of an anti-German hysteria after America had entered the war. Overzealous American patriots renamed Sauerkraut "Liberty Cabbage", slaughtered dachshunds, and eradicated the German language from American schools, churches, and newspapers. They changed the names of towns, burned books, destroyed libraries, threatened priests, forced German-Americans to buy war bonds and to kiss the star spangled banner. Vigilantes tarred and feathered and, in some cases hanged German-born immigrants falsely suspected of being spies. "Burning Beethoven" shines a light on that dark chapter of American history. Erik Kirschbaum, a native of New York City and a descendant from a German-American family, has lived in Germany for more than twenty-five years. He is a correspondent for the Reuters international news agency, and is based in Berlin since 1993. He has written about entertainment, politics, sports, economics, renewable energy as well as about disasters, earthquakes and climate change in nearly thirty countries. He is also a devoted father of four, an enthusiastic cyclist, a solar power entrepreneur and an unabashed crusader for renewable energy. He is also the author of the bestseller "Rocking the Wall. Bruce Springsteen: The Berlin Concert That Changed the World."
