Kurt Tucholsky, Deutschland, Deutschland über alles, 2008

_DSC8780-1 copia

Released in 1929, Deutschland, Deutschland über alles is probably Kurt Tucholsky’s most provocative satirical work. In this political testament accompanied by the photographs of the Dada artist John Heartfield, Tucholsky points his finger at the Weimar Republic, denouncing in no uncertain terms the corruption of justice and society. The words of the Berlin author sparked such heated controversy that the writer fled permanently to Sweden. A corrosive portrait of the era that even today continues to scratch the conscience.
