As an orphan, Hans Rosenthal (1925–1987) miraculously survived the Shoah by hiding out in an allotment garden colony. He would go on to become one of the most popular radio and television personalities in West Germany. In 1945, he began a traineeship at the Berliner Rundfunk. From 1948 onwards, he worked as a production manager and editor in the entertainment section of RIAS (Broadcasting in the American Sector). Here, he became the much-sought-after host of the many quiz and entertainment shows that he himself had created. His best-known television show was the quiz show “Dalli Dalli”, which was broadcast on ZDF.
