Book Description Atheneum, New York U. S. A., 1966. Softcover. Book Condition: As New. First English Edition. Marfree, stated 1st prtg of Engl Ed; no names, not marked-in, underscored, clearance or discard. Mails from NYC usually within 12 hours. ; 270 pages; The absolute best and absolute worst play I've ever done, Jan 28, 2005 \nBy Geri Farrar "LadyDiva" (NH) - \nNot meant for anyone younger than 18. But definitely a play that every single person on the planet should experience. If nothing else, it will remind you of how dangerous the world can be if we don't take care of each other, and what will happen again if we continue to turn our backs on the horrors that still go on today. \nAs an actor who has had the opportunity to perform a production of 'The Investigation' I offer a word of warning. This play will upset you, anger you, and destroy you. Merely reading the words on the page is bad enough, performing them - trying to re-emulate what really happened turns you inside out. As my director said - 'You'll be glad you did this, you'll be even gladder when it's over'. What is contained within the pages of this play is the human condition at it's absolute worse. You read about the ones who survived - and what they had to do in order to survive, and you read about those who were just 'following orders'. And the question you ask yourself when you are finished reading this is not 'What would I have done? ', but, 'Would I have survived? ' \n "Unforgettable, August 11, 2002 \nBy Paul J (nr London, United Kingdom) -\nOne of the most powerful readings of my life. I'd never heard of Weiss though I knew about the holocaust. Thinking of the death of millions of jews, gypsies, communists, mentally retarded and other 'undesirables' is always hard. A Series of Cantos from the transcripts of trials of Nazis in Germany after WWII. Weiss focuses on inviduals from this mass of innocent victims producing a tale to chill the heart, make any human cry and fill up with rage at the same time. The monstrous nazis have no shame or sense of guilt. Those who have survived the butchery give their case to the derision of those in the dock. Prosiac in language, overwhelming in tragedy. The sadistic . Nazis are exposed. The simple humanism of their victims is eloquent and the reading is unforgettable. Bookseller Inventory # 21508
