War was not over yet, when the signs of a fatal outcome became clear throughout Germany. So the misery was washed away with daydreams about an exotic isle like Capri. Long as Italy was a German allie, no problem. From the moment Italy changed camp, Capri-Fischer along with anything reminding Italy, was banned in Germany. Soon as the war was over, Capri-Fischer was reïntroduced big time on German playlists, making it a symbol of the Nachkriegszeit and Wirtschaftswunder. Call it the first Schlager.
