The Heir [היורש]


An Israeli steals the identity of a Jew murdered during the Holocaust as a means of illegally claiming reparation payments from the post-war German government. The play was controversial because of the questions it raised about the issue of reparations, which the Germans called "weidergutmachen" ("to make well again").
