Overwhelmed by Memory

A play that contains multiple provocative themes delivers on none

These are real questions. These are real ethical as well as dramatic problems. Is the fact of Jüenger's being German enough to condemn him? Of his having been a Nazi officer? Of his simply having been there, present at the horrors, incapable of or unwilling to do anything of consequence to stop them? Is witnessing a crime as reprehensible as committing it? A great play could be written on these themes. The Diaries is not it.
