Mother Courage is the play in which Brecht made his most passionate statement against war, but perhaps Brecht's greatest achievement in the drama lies in the creation of the character of Anna Fierling, nicknamed "Mother Courage," the itinerant trader who drags her canteen through the blood and carnage of the Thirty Years' War and whose fatal error is to believe that she can make the war serve her ends

Bernhard Heisig by Reiner E Moritz( Visual )

6 editions published between 1991 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the mists of war and violence, the Harlequin, trumpet in hand, drifts through ravaged landscape passing a cripple and a marionette: Bernhard Heisig's pictorial worlds shock the viewer by depicting the great dramas of German history. Both a victim and a perpetrator in World War II and in the GDR dictatorship, the artist's search for sense and truth led him to his moving image formulas. Director Reiner Moritz converses with the renowned ex-principal of the Leipzig Hochschule fur Grafik und Buchkunst (Academy of Visual Arts) about his work, which influenced the development of art for many decades in the rigid GDR system. I can only really paint rage well. Rage! Bernhard Heisig

Er führt beflissen Befehle aus, bis er zu ahnen beginnt, dass das Grauen nicht nur ohne höheren, sondern völlig ohne Sinn ist. Mit einem Essay von Theodor Heuss über die beiden großen Antikriegsbücher von Ludwig Renn ("Krieg") und Erich Maria Remarque ("Im Westen nichts Neues")
Woyzeck by Georg Büchner( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in German and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sacrificed to powers larger than himself, Woyzeck is one of the theatre's first anti-heroes. He serves a German captain and makes money by allowing a doctor to experiment on him, but his deeper morality leads him to a tragic end. A remarkable piece of theatre, Woyzeck is not bound by strictures of conventional space and time. It is a tiny play, but an epic."--Jacket
