Youth[ edit ] Hochhuth was born in Eschwege , and is descended from a Protestant Hessian burgess family. In he did an apprenticeship as a bookseller. Between and he worked in bookshops in Marburg, Kassel and Munich.

At the same time he attended university lectures as a guest student and began with early attempts at writing fiction. Between and he was a lector at a major West-German publishing house. Originally entitled Der Stellvertreter.

Although the play has never received serious praise as either literature or history,[ citation needed ] its publisher Ed Keating and journalist Warren Hinckle , who themselves considered it "dramaturgically flawed," organized a committee to defend the play as a matter of free speech. As a result, each production adapted the text in its own way. No audience saw it in its original form. Gerstein, a devout Protestant and later a member of the SS , wrote an eyewitness report about the gas chambers and, after the war, died as a POW.

The play ran for performances. Unbeknownst to Hochhuth, the pilot of the plane was still alive and he won a libel case that seriously affected the London theater which staged the play. The play partially drew on the work of young British author David Irving , later known as a Holocaust denier.

Irving and Hochhuth have been long-standing friends. In the UK, the play was seen on tour in the early s and was revived most recently at the Finborough Theatre , London, in It was directed by Christopher Loscher for Cerberus Theatre. Alan Turing[ edit ] His drama Alan Turing featured one of the fathers of modern computer science , who had made significant contributions to breaking German ciphers during World War II.

In , he again caused controversy with the play McKinsey is Coming, which raises the questions of unemployment, social justice and the "right to work". A passage in which he put the chairman of the Deutsche Bank in one line with leading businessmen who had been murdered by left-wing terrorists and also with Gessler, the villainous bailiff killed by William Tell , was widely seen as advocating, or at least excusing, violence against leading economic figures.

Hochhuth vigorously denied this. In March , Hochhuth became embroiled in controversy when, during an interview with the German weekly Junge Freiheit , he defended Holocaust denier David Irving , describing him as a "pioneer of modern history who has written magnificent books" and an "historian to equal someone like Joachim Fest ".
