Vienna Lauds 'The Deputy
After Explosive Opening

Editor's Note: Marguerite
Kozenn Chajes was in Vienna
recently where "The Deputy"
had premiered early this year.
This is her report on the re-
sponse evoked at its showing.

By Marguerite Kozenn Chajes

The premiere of "The Dep-
uty' in Vienna's Volkstheater on
Jan. 24 was marked by unrest,
violence and fights, as w ell as
overwhelming applause.

Prior to the performance,
Cardinal Koenig, the head of
the Austrian Catholics, had
warned against any demonstra-
tions, but a German folk
preacher by the name of Le-
pith instigated riots. He led
the booing and shouting, es-
pecially during the scene in
which Pope Pius was shown
in bad light.

has been presenting "The Dep-
uty" at least five times weekly
—always to sold-out houses,
without any disturbances. Al-
together. 45 performances have
been scheduled since the pre-
miere until the end of the sea-
son. Tickets for all presenta-
tions are sold out well in :
advance.
Rolf Hochhuth. who attended
the premiere, fled when the
riot broke out. However, an t
actress ran after him and
brought him out on the stage, •
where he received a tremendous
ovation.
Some weeks later, the fam-

ous State Yiddish Theater of
Warsaw, with its stars Ida
Kaminska and Marian Mel-
man, presented two sold-out
performances in Vienna. In
their interview to leading
Viennese papers, they praised
The director of the Volks- vienna as the legendary city
theater, Egon Epp, who is him- of theaters. Both assured that

interview and played for me empty boast."

and were deeply moved by the

Du4•ing the disturbance and
riots in the auditorium, Mr.
Epp felt it necessary to address
the audience. Among other ap-
pealing phrases, he used the
following, which I consider for
translation:
"In 1938, one could not do
anything against a rioting mob,
but I hope you will let me talk
in 1964! You are, of course, en-
titled to your own opinions, but
let me plead with you for one
thing see and hear this drama,
which is a "Requiem" (a Catho-
lic service for the dead) for
millions of martyrs, who per-
ished in the front lines, consen-
tration camps and gas chambers.

"Everyone should consider
his own guilt in that holo-
caust. In this second half of
,_the century, let ns meditate
and be ready and willing for
debates, even controversial,
about those who did not have
the good fortune to survive.
Let us discuss it in the most
civilized manner possible. In-
stead of rioting, let us show
respect and compassion for
the martyrs. It is our duty to
make sure that future catast-
rophes will not happen again."

At the end of the perform-
ance, Director Epp stepped
again before the curtain and
said: "I am grateful to the au-

thor, Rolf Hochuth, for having
written such a dramatic remind-
er of the sad past! -I am in-

debted to the actors, who co-
operated to the fullest, and last
but not least, I am praising the
time we live in, and which again
permits us to speak for human-
eness."

On the next page, however,
Dr. Schweitzer accused not only

During the riots of the second
