Book description
This 1938 play consists of a series of short scenes examining the ways in which oppressive Nazi policies affected families, marriage, neighbors and co-workers during the first five years of Hitler's Germany. Two of the most famous of these short plays are "The Jewish Wife," a monologue in which a Jewish woman prepares to leave her Aryan husband; and "The Informer," about a couple who suspect their young son of betraying them to the authorities.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0413772667, Paperback)

Brecht's series of twenty-four interconnected playlets describe events which took place in ordinary German households in the 1930s. They dramatize with clinical precision the suspicion and anxiety experienced by ordinary people, particularly Jewish citizens, as the power of Hitler grew.

This volume is translated by John Willett, joint editor of Brecht's collected plays in English and is accompanied by an extensive introduction and commentary.

"What Brecht shows us here is more or less harmless by comparison with what came later. Perhaps this is its greatest strength: we know the results, what we are looking for is the beginnings."-Max Frisch
