Isolde Kurz (1853-1944) was a popular, prolific and erudite German writer renowned for her fine style in all genres. She became dazzled by visions of Hitler’s Germany as a new Holy Roman Empire. The Nazis in turn fêted the writer. In her 19th century youth, nationalism had been, as it currently is in many places, liberty’s darling. She did come to distance herself from the fascists as time went on, expressing disdain for their life-negating materialism, and signing a manifesto against nationalist excesses, militarism and antisemitism.
