In Quest of Conscience


Based on the interviews by Gitta Sereny of Franz Stangl, the SS leader of the Nazi's euthanasia program that targeted the mentally and physically disabled and then the commandant of the Sobibor and Treblinka extermination centers. Strangl was hunted down by Simon Wiesenthal in Brazil and brought to Germany to stand trial for the murder of 900,000 victims. The play explores Strangl's childhood, his desire to be a fabric weaver, and his transformation into a key overseer of genocide.
