“The Condemned of Altona is a reminder that ethical difficulties are genuine, irreducible and very important even if they're insoluble. it's, for this reason, an occasion of high-quality value. it's the paintings of 1 who's either an ethical thinker and a dramatist, of a author who can current philosophical questions within the flesh and bones of concrete human situations.” —Heinz Lubasz, the recent Leader

The Condemned of Altona is an act of judgment at the 20th century, which would were an admirable period (the remaining traces let us know) if guy had no longer been threatened by means of ‘the merciless enemy who had sworn to damage him, that hairless, evil, flesh-eating beast—man himself. ‘All the characters within the play are defendants, trapped contained in the body of the proscenium as securely as Eichmann inside his glass cage in Jerusalem; their pass judgement on is the previous, and its verdict is with out mercy. dying consequences are imposed, and one sentence of solitary confinement for all times. The level, as so frequently in M. Sartre’s arms, turns into a spot of ethical inquisition, right now a court and a jail.
