The Private Life of the Master Race (aka Fear and Misery of The Third Reich)

by Bertolt Brecht

In a new American translation by Binyamin Shalom

Soho Rep's Walkerspace, New York City

1/1

The Private Life of the Master Race (aka Fear and Misery of The Third Reich) charts the submission of ordinary German citizens to the Nazi Party line. Suspicion, fear and the ever-narrowing parameters of patriotism are all surprisingly relevant in Brecht's response to regimen change in his native Germany in the 1930s.
