Oscar Nathan Straus was a Viennese composer of operettas and film scores and songs. His last name was originally 'Strauss', but he dropped the last 's' to avoid confusion with the Viennese musical family of the same name. He studied music in Berlin, before returning to Vienna. From a Jewish family, he then fled Vienna following the Nazi Anschluss in 1939, going to Paris and then Hollywood. He returned to Europe at the end of the war.
