The German Football Association erased all references to him from their records between 1933 and 1945.[1][7][8] He had the record of being the top German scorer in one match.[1]He served in the German Army in World War I as an artillery officer, and was awarded the Iron Cross.In 1928, he and his family moved to Berlin.[9] He was a member of the local tennis club Nikolassee e. V., but it barred him from membership in 1935.[9]When, years after the Holocaust in 1972, German former player and national team coach Sepp Herberger asked the German Football Association vice president Hermann Neuberger to invite Fuchs as a guest or a guest of honour to an international against Russia on the 60th anniversary of Fuchs' performance for the German team, the DFB Executive Committee declined to do so, writing that it was not willing to invite Fuchs because it would have created an unfortunate precedent (as was pointed out, given that Fuchs was the last remaining former Jewish German international, the DFB’s concern about creating a precedent was a difficult one to understand).Richard Fuchs ( German: Richard Fuchs ; April 26, 1887 , Karlsruhe - September 22, 1947 , Wellington ) is a German architect and composer of Jewish descent. Brother football player Gottfried Fuchs .Born in Karlsruhe , Richard Fuchs was the eldest son in a wealthy family of German Jews . He studied architecture in Berlin , and began his practice there in 1911. When World War I began three years later , he, along with three brothers, went to the Western Front and fought in France and Belgium. After the war he returned to Karlsruhe and continued his education, eventually receiving a doctorate in architecture . He had his own architectural practice, designed residential and public buildings, including the synagogue in Gernsbach ( 1928 ), destroyed by the Nazis [2] . Headed the city branch of Bnei Brit, and with the creation on the Nazi initiative of the Jewish Cultural Union, designed to separate cultural figures of Jewish origin from the Germans, he co-founded his unit in Baden-Württemberg.After Kristallnacht, Fuchs was arrested and imprisoned in the Dachau concentration camp , where he spent several weeks. However, the Fuchs family had already received visas to travel to New Zealand , and on this basis, Fuchs's wife managed to secure his release. In December 1938, Fuchs traveled to New Zealand. Here he managed to find a job as a draftsman . He then got an architect's job at Natusch and Sons, Wellington , and then at the Housing Department. But if in Germany he was persecuted as a Jew , then in New Zealand, when the Second World War began, he was declared a "hostile alien" like a German .Richard Fuchs did not receive a systematic music education. The first surviving of his works, remaining in the manuscript, date back to 1931 , and these are already quite mature works of a large form (quartets, symphony). In the mid 1930s Fuchs made a number of attempts to go to the listener; several of his works were performed in Karlsruhe and Mannheim , and Felix Weingartner in 1933 responded to the sent score with a sympathetic letter, expressing surprise at the skill of a non-professional composer, but noting that the time was very bad for the works of an unknown author in the spirit of Dobruckner romanticism. Later Fuchs oratorio “On Jewish fate” ( German: Vom judischen Schiksal, to the poems of Karl Wolfskel ) received the first prize in a competition held by the All-German Association of Jewish Cultural Unions, and was supposed to be performed at the reporting concert in Berlin, but the performance was ultimately banned. Thus, in Germany, Fuchs' composing career did not take place, however, despite this, upon leaving for New Zealand through the UK he managed to receive letters of recommendation from Ralph Vaughan-Williams and Gordon Jacob with a high appreciation of his skill.In New Zealand, where regular musical life was just beginning to take shape, Fuchs participated in chamber music concerts as a pianist, but did not succeed in trying to offer his music to be performed by nascent local groups. Nevertheless, in the New Zealand period of his life he created a number of compositions, including songs to the words of local authors. One of them, the “New Zealand Christmas Psalm” for girls’s choir, was included in the repertoire of many local choirs and, in particular, was performed by the Maori Girls Choir at a concert marking the visit of Elizabeth II to New Zealand in 1953. In the 1960s and 70s other vocal compositions of Fuchs were occasionally performed - and only beginning in 2007 in Germany and New Zealand did the revival of his chamber music begin, and on May 9, 2008The New Zealand Symphony Orchestra performed, under the direction of Kenneth Young, the premiere of the one-part Symphony in F Minor. Fuchs's grandson shot a documentary about him entitled "Third Richard" (the first two were Richard Wagner and Richard Strauss ).Го́тфрид Э́рик Фукс (нем. Gottfried Erik Fuchs; 3 мая 1889, Карлсруэ — 25 февраля 1972, Монреаль) — немецкий футбольный нападающий. Брат композитора Рихарда Фукса.В составе сборной Германии участвовал в футбольном турнире летних Олимпийских игр 1912 года, где стал лучшим бомбардиром, забив 10 мячей в двух матчах (причём все 10 в матче со сборной Российской империи).После установления в Германии нацистской власти, эмигрировал в Канаду,Рихард Фукс (нем. Richard Fuchs; 26 апреля 1887, Карлсруэ — 22 сентября 1947, Веллингтон) — немецкий архитектор и композитор еврейского происхождения. Брат футболиста Готфрида Фукса.Ричард Фукс родился в Карлсруэ, был старшим сыном в состоятельной семье немецких евреев. Учился архитектуре в Берлине, и там же начал свою практику в 1911. Когда через три года началась Первая мировая война, он вместе с тремя братьями попал на Западный фронт, воевал во Франции и Бельгии. После войны вернулся в Карлсруэ и продолжил своё образование, получив в итоге степень доктора архитектуры. Имел собственную архитектурную практику, проектировал жилые и общественные здания, в том числе синагогу в Гернсбахе (1928), разрушенную нацистами[2]. Возглавлял городское отделение Бней-Брит, а с созданием по инициативе нацистов Еврейского культурного союза, призванного отделить деятелей культуры еврейского происхождения от немцев, выступил соучредителем его подразделения в Баден-Вюртемберге.После «хрустальной ночи» Фукс был арестован и заключён в концентрационный лагерь Дахау, где он провёл несколько недель. Однако у семьи Фукса уже были оформлены визы для выезда в Новую Зеландию, и на этом основании жене Фукса удалось добиться его освобождения. В декабре 1938 года Фукс выехал в Новую Зеландию. Здесь ему удалось найти работу чертежника. Затем он получил место архитектора в фирме «Натуш и сыновья» (Natusch and Sons), в Веллингтоне, а затем в жилищном управлении (the Housing Department). Но если в Германии он преследовался как еврей, то в Новой Зеландии, когда началась Вторая мировая война, он был объявлен «враждебным иностранцем», как немец.В Новой Зеландии, где регулярная музыкальная жизнь ещё только начинала складываться, Фукс участвовал в концертах камерной музыки как пианист, однако так и не преуспел в попытках предложить свою музыку для исполнения зарождавшимися местными коллективами. Тем не менее, в новозеландский период жизни им был создан ряд сочинений, в том числе песни на слова местных авторов. Одна из них, «Новозеландский рождественский псалом» для хора девочек, вошла в репертуар многих местных хоров и, в частности, была исполнена Хором девочек маори на концерте по случаю визита Елизаветы II в Новую Зеландию в 1953 году. В 1960-70-е гг. эпизодически исполнялись и другие вокальные сочинения Фукса — и только начиная с 2007 г. в Германии и Новой Зеландии началось возрождение его камерной музыки, а 9 мая 2008 г. Новозеландский симфонический оркестр исполнил под управлением Кеннета Янга премьеру одночастной Симфонии фа минор. Внук Фукса снял о нём документальный фильм, озаглавленный «Третий Рихард» (под первыми двумя подразумевались Рихард Вагнер и Рихард Штраус).
