Abstract

The article tries to read the plays by George Tabori from an intercultural point of view. The focus is on his play Mein Kampf, in which he uses irony to oppose the threatening mythologization of Hitler. It was first staged in 1987 in Vienna, when the status of Austria as a victim of Nazi-Germany became questionable and the Jews in Vienna regained their self-awareness for the first time after World War II.
