Thank you for being the visitor to this site.


1) The Conrad Veidt Society is dedicated to celebrating the life and career of Conrad Veidt; and ensuring that his admirers around the world have a source of complete information on this remarkable man.

2) The Conrad Veidt Society is dedicated to continuing Conrad Veidt's legacy as a humanitarian. In his early career he starred in movies advocating gay and women rights. In later life he was a staunch opponent of the mindless hatred of Nazism. Mindless hatred still exists today in many forms, and we must speak out against it.

3) The Conrad Veidt Society is dedicated to promoting the study and enjoyment of 'classic' films. By placing Conrad Veidt in the context of his times - Germany during the fame of the Expressionist film, England after the rise of Hitler, and America gearing up to fight WWII, his unique qualities as actor and man are made even more apparent.


The Conrad Veidt Society was founded in 1990, by Jim Rathlesberger, in preparation for the 1993 commemorations around the world of the100th anniversary of his birth (in 1893) and the 50th anniversary of his death (in 1943).

After assisting in preparing these commemorations which took place in 1993, the Conrad Veidt Society continued to celebrate his legacy. There are over 150 members in the Society, and we are growing every day.

During World War I and World War II, much activity took place on each country's 'home front' to ensure support for the war. Entertainers also travelled to the front lines and risked their lives to provide a moment's respite from war to the front-line soldiers. This page will discuss those activities.
