Summary"All... authors express their personal animosity against the terroristic reign of the present-day Nazi system... Each play can be appraised as being a calm, almost dispassionate, yet vital and veracious dramatization of fear, terror and ruthlessness as exercised by the Nazis upon the great mass of German people today... Each play seeks to describe graphically the conditions under which a suppressed and intimidated nation of men and women must exist... [We] reveal, honestly and graphically, the material, emotional and psychological states of human beings who are unfortunate enough to live under a dictatorship such as that of Adolf Hitler..."
