Mengelberg's List


On the 4th of May, the EO will broadcast the documentary "Mengelberg's List". A documentary about the world-famous conductor of the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Willem Mengelberg. Because he had Nazi sympathies, he was severely punished after World War II and dismissed as a collaborator and traitor. However, it now appears that he was also actively involved in the rescue of dozens of Jews. The documentary is about whether Mengelberg should be remembered for the lives he saved, or whether the label 'war criminal' suits him better.

The documentary is full of music composed by Big Orange and produced by MOONDOCS, directed by Jaap Van Eyck. Don't forget! Tuesday 4 May, 10:45 PM, NPO2.
