Goldberg’s Kaddish


The central character is David Goldberg who is imprisoned in West Berlin in 1961, waiting to be tried for the murder of Erich Mauler, a former SS Officer and a prominent public figure in postwar Germany. While the play uses ironic comedy, the audience eventually learns, through flashbacks, of Goldberg's personal motives: his wife is a survivor who suffered intense brutality at the hands of the former Nazi and his colleagues.
