The Kindly Ones - Toneelhuis & Toneelgroep Amsterdam
The Kindly Ones enter a confrontation with the darkest side of human behaviour: the Nazi ideology and the destruction of the Jews. How was this able to happen in the middle of Europe? What political, ideological, psychological and social changes caused the origin of this violence and let it happen? The unsteady political basis of Europe and the emergence of far-right and xenophobic parties give this project an exceptional urgency.
At its appearance in 2006, the weighty novel by Jonathan Littell about the persecution of Jews during the Second World War was praised and criticized at the same time.
