This letter was inspired by the book The Road to the Open by the Austrian Jewish physician, author, and playwright Arthur Schnitzler [1]. In the Viennese fin-de-siecle era, with its famous physicians (Sigmund Freud, Josef Breuer, Róbert Bárány), musicians (Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Franz Schubert, Joseph Haydn, Gustav Mahler, Arnold Schoenberg, Johann Strauss II), and artists (Ernst and Gustav Klimt, Oskar Kokoschka, Egon Schiele), Schnitzler described the antisemitic atmosphere and the intellectual community's influence.
