Fear and Misery of the Third Reich Summary

Fear and Misery of the Third Reich by Bertolt Brecht

Also known as The Private Life of the Master Race, this is a sequence of twenty-four realistic sketches showing how ordinary life under the Nazis was subtly permeated by suspicion and anxiety. Written in exile in Denmark and first staged in 1938 it was inspired in part by his recent trip to Moscow where he had been researching tasks for the anti-Nazi effort.
