“The Condemned of Altona is a reminder that ethical difficulties are actual, irreducible and important even if they're insoluble. it's, hence, 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 hot Leader
The Condemned of Altona is an act of judgment at the 20th century, which would were an admirable period (the last strains let us know) if guy had no longer been threatened by way of ‘the merciless enemy who had sworn to spoil 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 of his glass cage in Jerusalem; their pass judgement on is the earlier, and its verdict is with out mercy. loss of life consequences are imposed, and one sentence of solitary confinement for all times. The degree, as so usually in M. Sartre’s fingers, turns into a spot of ethical inquisition, instantaneously a court and a jail.
