Upon its premiere, The Deputy stirred up more controversy and
caused greater repercussions than any other postwar work. Based on
Rolf Hochhuth's research into the Vatican activities during World
War II, the play's treatment of Pope Pius XII -- the "deputy" of
Christ on earth -- and the Church during the Nazi persecution of
the Jews made it the object of impassioned praise and violent
denunciation. It is a powerful, shocking work that casts a
penetrating eye on the role that supposed moral leaders must play
in times of great humanitarian crises.
