The initial inspiration for Lynx was born out of the ignoring by the "Verband Deutscher Tonkünstler und Musiklehrer (VDTM)" of the anniversaries of prominent Jewish composers, including Mahler and Mendelssohn, following a Nazi-instilled anti-Semitic tradition. The 1960's were an important time in Germany for a change in the previously dominant anti-Semitic attitudes, and this new outlook was helped along by the Eichmann and Auschwitz trials. Lynx was published alongside these important changes in the country, ceasing publication just before the events of 1968. The journal has been called one of the harbingers of the protests and revolts which took place that year. Contributors to Lynx included Joseph Baur, Eugen Brehm, Albrecht Barfod, Jürgen Busack, Werner Dietzel, Manfred Leier, Georg Burckhardt, David Luschnat, Ruprecht Großman, Dietrick Stahlbaum, Juan Allende-Blin, Harald Hartung, Peter Schütt, Dieter Schumacher, Karlheinz Deschner, and Hans Wollschläger, among others.
