This essay was prepared as a discussion piece for the 2010 East Coast Bruckerathon. The images to the right include a post card to comemmorate the 1937 "Day of German Art" and a medal designed by Karl Goetz to mark the occasion of Anton Bruckner's bust being placed in Valhalla. Both events are central to the points raised in this essay.

An English translation of Joseph Goebbel's Regensburg speech is also available below.
