“Horváth was telling the truth. Furiously.” – Shalom Auslander
“The most gifted writer of his generation.” – Stefan Zweig
A shocking allegorical evocation of life under fascism by Oscar-winning dramatist Christopher Hampton (Dangerous Liaisons, Atonement, The Son), Youth Without God is a chilling reminder that populist political rhetoric has consequences.
When a teacher reprimands a student for a racist comment, he stands accused of ‘sabotage of the Fatherland'. As events escalate, and a murder takes place, the teacher must decide whether to take a stand, even if it costs him everything.
In Youth Without God, written in exile having fled the Nazis, Horvath portrays a world of individual ruthlessness and collective numbness which is as relevant today as it was on its release in 1938.
