This fascinating text contains a play based on the true story of a pastor who was taken to the Dachau concentration camp in the 1930s for questioning the Nazi Party. When regiment of storm-troopers take over a small village in Germany and attempt to re-educate its citizens with ideas of The New Order, the kind and gentle pastor takes his critical convictions to the pulpit and, as a consequence of this, is sent to the concentration camp. An inspiring and moving real-life story of bravery in the face of certain death, this play will appeal to anyone interested in true-to-life accounts of pre-WWII Nazi Germany and constitutes a worthy addition to any bookshelf. Ernst Toller was a famous German playwright most renowned for his expressionist plays. This book was originally published in 1939 and is proudly republished here with a new introductory biography of the author."
