Disney in Deutschland


In August, 1935, Walt Disney and his wife Lillian were invited by the League of Nations (in Paris) to receive a prize for the international popularity of Mickey Mouse. Disney was known to have admired Hitler back in the US, even attending Bund rallies in support of the Nazis. Disney also expressed antipathy toward the growing union movements in the Hollywood studios, calling them a Jewish conspiracy. The Neuschwanstein Castle (referred to in the play) was designed by Ludwig of Bavaria in the 1860s, to celebrate the music dramas of Richard Wagner. This castle’s design is remarkably similar to the Sleeping Beauty castle used in most Disney theme parks to this day; and it was one of the Führer’s favorite places. Based on true events.
