this play has created world-wide controversy.
‘The history of our own time is still shot through and through with inhumanity, and we accept it as natural. hochhuth’s is not only an historical judgement, but an alarm call to our age which is sinking into inhumanity and unawareness’ –ALBERT SCHWEITZER
‘The play is, in its orginal format, a work of such intense scope and power that it becomes one of those works which cannot be compared to anything: they demand that other works be compared to them. Europe has produced nothing since the end of the war to set beside its profundity, its compassion, its understanding.’ BENARD LEVIN IN THE DAILY MAIL
