The Melting Pot

Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(2.8 stars; 4 reviews)

Russian-Jew David Quixano has come to America after surviving a pogrom which has killed his family. He has written a symphony which embodies his vision of America as a melting pot, into which people from all the nations of the earth come, and "the great Alchemist melts and fuses them with his purging flame! Here shall they all unite to build the Republic of Man and the Kingdom of God." But old hatreds and old sins die hard....

Note: There are attitudes and terms in the play and the afterword that may be offensive to some listeners.

(5 stars)

The previous reviewer obviously didn't listen to this work. He would have found attitudes in it that perfectly fit his own warped worldview.

Cringy Jew

(1 stars)

Americans wholeheartedly reject this disgusting, Jewish proposition. One race, one flag, one nation, forever.
