World War II redefined man's existence on earth. While the First World War was about land squabbles, country allegiances and the assassination of Archduke Franz Gerdinand of Austria, the Second World War was an epic battle of good vs. evil, light vs. dark and freedom vs. oppression. Germany was blamed for a good deal of the atrocities committed and after the war many German peoples had to walk around with the burden of knowing that what their country did was an abomination of all that is virtuous in civilization. While a good deal of Germans undoubtedly want to shut out the memories of WWII, others feel a need to explore what made people buy into the fervent message that Adolf Hitler preached and get to the core of what turned Germany into an immoral nation intent on world domination. Folks who fall into this later category will find the play Dritte Generation quite intriguing. The story follows the lives of German Jews and their existence after the war. While this might sound like a serious plot line, with tinges of comedic levity, Dritte Generation manages to be a lofty play that's serious but also lighthearted.
