Note 042
by Joachim C. Fest

42 Quoted by Rolf Michaelist, 'Das wandelbare politische Gesicht eines Dichters', Der Tagesspiegel, 15th November 1962. See also the recollections of the writer Ferenc Kormendy on his personal encounter with Gerhart Hauptmann in the summer of 1938, which impressively testify to this ambivalence.

From Chapter 20, Professor NSDAP , Part 3 of The Face Of The Third Reich by J.C. Fest -- See further Notes
