“The Deputy” (1963)

After reading this story and listening to this audio you may want to read about

Rolf Hochhuth

Rolf Hochhuth during World War II, was a member of the Deutsches Jungvolk, a subdivision of the Hitler Youth and a registered Natzi. In March 2005, Hochhuth became embroiled in controversy when, during an interview with the German weekly Junge Freiheit, he defended Holocaust denier David Irving, describing him as a “pioneer of modern history who has written magnificent books” and an “historian to equal someone like Joachim Fest”.  When asked about Irving’s statement that “more women died on the back seat of Edward Kennedy’s car at Chappaquiddick than ever died in a gas chamber in Auschwitz”, Hochhuth dismissed it as provocative black humour. Paul Spiegel, President of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, argued that with these statements Hochhuth himself was denying the Holocaust.

You may find that the destruction of the house and its contents may be inevitable however the destruction of history and the role this home played in History can not be destroyed. the full story will be told here in this web site.
