5.0 étoiles sur 5 Stunning and still relevant..... 29 juillet 2002
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
"The Deputy" is stunning and still relevant, despite the acidic reviews you might find here contesting the pertinence of this play. It's more than probable the negative ratings in regards to this piece belong to the pious who, instead of looking at the objective facts, hide behind their own grandiose illusions regarding the dogmas into which they have been indoctrinated.
Afterall, is there any historical doubt that Pope Pius XII did not publicly condemn the wholesale slaughter of Jews by the Nazi regime? I haven't seen any document stating otherwise. Sure, he made blanket condemnations pronounced in the garb of generalities, but that's not what Hochhuth's play addresses. It's a simple question we must ask: should, as some consider, the highest moral authority on the planet straddle the fence in an attempt not to offend anyone, or should we expect a public condemnation of evil on such a grand scale? This, in my view, and in sum, is the dilemma the play poses to each reader.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 History Lost 10 décembre 2012
Par Ann Lackey - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Reader beware. THE DEPUTY is not history or literature. It is
Soviet-style propaganda--fiction presented under the guise of
history with the intent to mislead and misrepresent. This play
entrapped many-readers and historians alike. Its power proved so
great that it is an historic event of the 20th century.

I avoided THE DEPUTY when researching its antidote & counterpoint,
THE GLORY OF THE OLIVE.[...].Getting facts to achieve true
historical perspective and understanding proved an imperative goal.

Having achieved that, I can now address a portion from my second project,
THE PIUS PREDICAMENT, and a major problem arising from THE DEPUTY.
It intrigues me that no one has noticed Pius has become a scapegoat for
the guilt of the Holocaust. Consider the following:
1)Aside from the Resistance and courageous individuals, FDR,
Churchill,the Protestant churches, the Jewish religious groups
did little or nothing. Check #4 below.

2)Thanks to Pius' leadership, silent or spoken, 80% of the
Roman Jews never reached the gas chambers.

The problem is THE DEPUTY lacks historical perspective. How so? Hochhuth
took a post-war issue and made it a war-issue. True, the Holocaust
happened during the War and rumors abounded. Yet it was post-war, because....

1) the War was the prime focus.
2) the Holocaust was an effect of the war.
3) the Holocaust was secretly enforced.
4) the Holocaust was officially known in late 1942 near the war's end.

Pius was able to marshal support in Rome because he had the religious leverage
with the many institutions; it coincided with his (4) knowledge of the Holocaust
from his inquiries with FDR and the German occupation & plans to seize Jews in Rome.

For a quick, reliable resource, I recommend Dr. Marchione's paperback,
Did Pope Pius XII Help the Jews?.

Don't miss David Dalin's
The Myth of Hitler's Pope: Pope Pius XII And His Secret War Against Nazi Germany
and Kurzman's
A Special Mission: Hitler's Secret Plot to Seize the Vatican and Kidnap Pope Pius XII.

Happy reading--

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Hugely important drama on the holocaust 25 octobre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
No literary work about the holocaust has so much shaken the conscience of the western world as he Deputy". Since the play first appeared in 1963, it has been reviewed, rereviewed, praised, damned and boycotted (including the American Nazi Party). What I have to add here is (1) praise to Johns Hopkins University Press for republishing the play and (2) rebuttal of the bizarre and shameful comments appearing at this site on July 1, 1999 and October 21, 1999.
To any one who has read the play, or attended it, it is obvious that it deals with the HOLOCAUST and nothing less. That Pius II did not protest as strongly and often as he should could have and that he did not protect Roman jews is an important part of the play.
Nowhere in the play, the stage instructions, the appendices nor anywhere does Hochhuth "shift the blame" for the holocaust. Indeed, Acts 1-3 and 5 put the responsibility brutally and exactly where it belongs. (The pope, drawn as a caricature of a CEO, appears only in Act 4, essentially denying the reality of the holocaust).
The principal character in the play is Riccardo Fontana, a catholic priest (a jesuit), son of a laic counsellor to the pope, who struggles futilely against the Nazis - and the obtuseness of the vatican - and is murdered by the Nazis. Like all characters in the play, Riccardo is a fictional character inspired by a real person. The inspiration for Riccardo came from Bernard Lichtenberg, prelate of St. Hedwig's cathedral, Berlin and father Maximilian Kolbe, martyred in Auschwitz and canonized (John Paul II) in 1982. The play is dedicated to these men.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A great (if unwieldy) play on a subject of devastating importance 5 juillet 2005
Par Scott Ross - Publié sur Amazon.com
It may be difficult to imagine how one would stage this play effectively: it's length is prohibitive and it moves around from location to location, each described in great, novelistic detail by the playwright, and utterly impractical in a theatrical context. But it's a riveting, rigorously intelligent and utterly damning take of Pius's unforgivable reticense regarding the Holocaust. What with the Vatican's continued talk of canonizing Pius -- in spite of its much-ballyhooed (by the Vatican only) talk of repentence for centuries of murderous anti-Semitism -- this is a timely play and should be read widely.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Blackhearts at the trough 2 mai 2014
Par Gerald R. Marka - Publié sur Amazon.com
I do not understand individuals who feed on this kind of filthy soup and then have the guts to praise the wretched flavor to everyone else. The Deputy is a false, coldhearted, slanderous attack on the character of Pope Pius XII during World War 2. It is also a blatant assault on the Roman Catholic Church. Those who have read this book and have loved it are nothing more than Catholic haters who like to read communist slop. Anything that degrades the Church makes them extremely happy. and feel justified in their liberal, boring, godless opinions.

Pius XII was one of the finest popes in the history of the Church. He did more for the Jews than any of you liberal nincompoops have ever done. The truth is that he saved hundreds of thousands of Jewish lives behind the scenes of the Vatican. It takes a lot of courage to defend someone who has been unjustly vilified by others. It is very difficult. The liars and the hypocrites, on the other hand, are always on the offense first, looking to justify and elevate themselves with the public, often profiting from the endeavor. They always have the advantage. To ruin someone's reputation can bring them fame and fortune, whether it's unjust or not.
