KIRKUS REVIEW

More readily understood than Spender's poems is this allegorical drama based on the situation in Nazi Germany. The Judge is faced with the problem of judgment on the murderers of a Polish Jew. He condemns them, and is in turn himself condemned. The various factions are there -- government, the people, the Communists, the Jews. A stirring and powerful arraignment of Nazi tyranny.
