World War I and destroyed all the structures, values, and self-confidence that created the seeming greatness of the nineteenth century. In its place stood only ruins, the shards of a civilization. In response to this, Emil Molt—the director of the Waldorf-Astoria Cigarette Factory and a student of Rudolf Steiner—decided to establish a school to educate people who could create a new culture. Thus, the Waldorf school movement was begun. Rudolf Steiner agreed to act as the school’s consultant, and his insights guided the school in accomplishing this ambitious task.
