Chopin wasn't very fond of Jews either.

As a composer in Paris, Chopin was driven into rages by Jewish publishers, or publishers he imagined were behaving "like Jews". These quotes are from two letters of 1839:

"I did not think that Pleyel would play the Jew with me … Get 500 for the ballade from Probst, and then take it to Schlesinger. If I have got to deal with Jews, let it at least be Orthodox ones. Probst may swindle me even worse, for he’s a sparrow whose tail you can’t salt. Schlesinger has always cheated me but he has made a lot out of me and won’t want to refuse another profit. Be polite to him because the Jew likes to pass for somebody …

Good Lord, why must one have dealings with scoundrels! Well, I prefer to do business with a real Jew … I would rather sell my manuscripts for nothing as in the old days, than have to bow and scrape to such fools. And I’d rather be humiliated by one Jew than three… Scoundrels, scoundrels." -- Frederic Chopin
