I had planned to write an in-depth review about the tenuous balance this show aims to achieve. It humanizes fascists while pointing out the brutal, sickening policies of the Third Reich. It also paints the resistance as terrorists similar in tactics to present-day Jihadists.

“Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!” — Emma Lazarus
Donald Trump, the refugee ban, and the triumph of cruelty.
