Hamburg dare to speak out, despite the danger.

Peiper and Paul Konopka.
Gisa Peiper (Konopka), Germany
A heady, beautifully written play ... a lovely balance between poetry and reality, bringing to life a diverse cast of
characters in a challenging time period. Claire Rudy Foster, ForeWord
play recreates in moving drama the (anti-Nazi) struggles and the desperate
attempt of good people to remain moral in the most immoral of societies. Powerful,
poignant and penetrating .... Michael Berenbaum, Professor of Jewish Studies
