THE FALSE WITNESS is an original play. The play is set before the Gates of Purgatory where Adolf Hitler is being brought before the Criminal Court Of The High Tribunal.

In addition, this work proposes to put Germany, Christianity and Mankind on trial for the tragedy known to history as the Holocaust. As the Defense counsel for Adolf Hitler summons his witnesses before the Tribunal, it becomes clear to us that Hitler's claim of being an instrument for the real wishes of mankind rings all too true. This play is a statement about historical complicity and looks back into time in search of the origins of mankind's darkest era.
