The building called “Nestroyhof” remains today in the hands of the offspring of the family that acquired it through Nazi confiscation in 1941 from its original owner, Anna Stein. In 2001,Warren Rosenzweig first began to champion the cause of “cultural restitution” of the former Jewish Theater, then hidden (and unused), in its covered courtyard. Discussions with officials brought negative results.

Since 2003, the “Nestroyhof Initiative” of the Jewish Theater of Austria has attracted public attention at home and abroad via all news media. Rosenzweig has long proposed the establishment of an international Jewish theater – or “world theater” – at the original location of the Jüdische Künstlerspiele. He has also promoted public concern for justice on behalf of the offspring of Anna Stein.
