pagini uitate, pagini cenzurate, pagini exilate...iubiri romanesti a la Holllywood

Un nume celebru in Bucovina, Romania, Germania si Austria, dar si Amerca si Elvetia de dinaintea mijlocului  secolului XX a fost

JOSEPH SCHMIDT




Nascut intr-o familie din Davideni (Storojinet-Cernauti) in 1904, a avut drept limba materna pe cea germana
iar paterna idis, vorbind insa in casa cu ceilalti frati, Regina, Bety, Schlomo si Mariem...romaneste...





Dupa scoala de la sinagoga din Cernauti, unde invata sa cante la orga si violina, este remarcat pentru vocea sa extraordinara in timp ce era membru al corului. La varsta de 21 de ani incepe cursurile Inaltei Academii de Muzica din Berlin. In timpul seviciului militar la Batalionul II vanatori de munte din Radauti, devenit acum parte din Romania Mare, se afirma si ca tenor, cantand totodata in orchestra militara.
In 1929 a debutat la Radio Berlin si concerteaza deasemeni la Anvers, fiind supranumit "un Caruso german".
La 9 mai 1933 apare intr-un spectacol organizat de studiourile U.F.A. Berlin si este ovationat la scena deschisa de insusi...ministrul propagandei german, Goebels. Concerteaza de asemeni la Toulon, Viena si Salzburg.
In America este denumit in 1937 "minunea anului" alaturi de ... podul "Golden Gate" ! Tot aici, filmul sau "My song goes round the world" - "Ein Lied geht um die Welt", (ce a rulat si pe ecranele romanesti cu titlul "Un cantec strabate lumea") are unele dintre cele mai favorabile critici si aprecieri.
America avea sa-i aduca si o mare dezamagire...


Se indragosteste de solista de opera Grace Moore cu care joaca intr-un spectacolla Carnegie Hall, dar iubirea sa este respinsa pe motiv de ...diferenta de inaltime (Schmidt avea doar 1,60 m).
Dupa Anschluss-ul nazist, se refugiaza intai in Franta, apoi ajunge in Elvetia. Aici se imbolnaveste de laringita si alte complicatii la plamani, decedand la 16 noembrie 1942. Este inmormantat in cimitirul israelit din Zurich.
