Trivia:

Although excoriated during his later years (and since) as a collaborationist during the Nazi occupation of Holland, he did use at least some of his influence with the Nazis for good: Of all the Jewish members of the Concertgebouw and their families captured by the Nazis, not one died in the camps, supposedly the direct result of discreet influence peddling on Mengelberg's part.
