O KŁAMSTWIE, KŁAMSTWIE I KŁAMSTWIE. MEANDRY PA-MIĘCI W KAMIENIU MARIUSA VON MAYENBURGA
Languages of publication
The author of this article analyses The Stone, a play by Marius von Mayenburg, a renowned and highly acclaimed German playwright, dramatist and director. He perceives this work as a reckoning with Germany’s national so-cialist past. Through the prism of three generations of the Heising family, Mayenburg exposes the mechanisms at work in the creation of a family legend (“we are decent people; we were never Nazis; we helped the Jewish people”), which turns out to be merely a product of distortion and misrepresentation of historical truth, and an attempt to avert the blame.
