Here Is Your Jew!

Author(s): Boruch Miller
A Yiddish domestic drama that dramatizes the impact of the Naxis' early attacks on Jews in the Third Reich who believed they were assimilated German citizens. A Jewish World War I hero, who has intermarried and has a daughter, finds his family persecuted because of his religion. He erroneously believes that he can get help from a Reich government official whose life he saved during battle. Instead, the play's melodramatic conclusion reveals that he has been killed.
