Never Again War - Abridged - Abridged

The Sacrifice of Kathe Kollwitz

Description

SueMedia Productions/Midsummer Sound Company present this original audio drama by Helen Engelhardt.

Begun as a stage play by Engelhardt, this adaptation focuses on key moments in the life of renowned artist Kathe Kollwitz to reveal the complex world in which she lived and the destructive nature of war. After her youngest son was killed in Belgium during the opening weeks of World War I, she devoted the rest of her life to using her art in opposition to war.

The play begins in Berlin in February 1914 at a party in the Kollwitz home celebrating the eighteenth birthday of her son Peter. A few months later as war begins, Peter implores his parents for permission to join his older brother Hans to become a soldier in the army.

To uphold her sons' idealism to sacrifice for the Fatherland, the socialist Kollwitz finds herself supporting them in a war she deeply disapproved of. When the play concludes two weeks before Germany's defeat at the end of World War II, Kollwitz has learned that every war is answered by a new war until everything is smashed because every war carries within it the war that will answer it, as World War II answered World War I.
