Notes

Benatzky is often mistakenly referred to as Jewish due to an error published book of Jewish musicians during World War II. Benatzky himself was not Jewish, but he was twice married to Jewish women: Josma Selim, a singer (Hedwig Josma Fischer; born 1884 in Wien; died 1929 in Berlin) and Melanie "Mela" Hoffmann, a dancer[2][3][4].
