Vergangenheitsbewältigung is a German word describing the attempt to analyze, digest and learn to live with the past, in particular the Holocaust – “Those who forget the past are condemned to repeat it”.
The pressing need to learn from the atrocities of history on this, the 75th anniversary of D-Day is painfully apparent in Essential Collective Theatre’s production of Canadian playwright Hannah Moscoviwich’s East of Berlin.
