Claire Waldoff (1884–1957)
The cabaret and chanson singer Claire Waldoff rose to stardom on Germany’s vaudeville stages before the First World War. Her light-hearted and flippant songs, often performed in Berlin’s unmistakable dialect, and her openly lesbian lifestyle infuriated the Nazis. In 1933 she was temporarily prohibited from performing in public. Waldoff was discriminated against as a lesbian and could only appear on stage sporadically during the Nazi era. Her career was ruined.
