Schnitzler The Austrian-Jewish playwright and novelist Arthur Schnitzler (1862-1931) with his wife Olga and his children Heinrich and Lily. Jews in Central and Eastern Europe suffered most from the oppression and economic insecurity brought about by anti-Jewish policies. Only by the 19th century did Jewish communities begin to prosper and could Jews enjoy civil freedoms. Arthur Schnitzler belongs to the first generation of European Jews to profit from these new cultural and economic opportunities.

Vienna, 1910
