Bertolt Brecht
Translated by Eric Bentley
We are in Nazi Germany where all justice is relative. The judge is first coached, rather than briefed, by the inspector, then by the prosecutor regarding the case of a Jew who was roughd up and whose store was robbed by the SS men. Whatever happens, truth and justice will have little play.

Settings Of Play - Nazi Germany

We are in Nazi Germany where all justice is relative. The judge is first coached, rather than briefed, by the inspector, then by the prosecutor regarding the case of a Jew who was roughed up and whose store was robbed by the SS men. There is a conflict between what neighbors want and what the Nazi bureaucracy want. The judge gingerly asks the advice of another judge, only to be told to look out for his own interests first. He cpllects his papers and proceeds to packed chambers in a great sweat. Whatever happens, truth and justice will have little play.
