THE THREE ESCAPES
OF HANNAH ARENDT:
A TYRANNY OF TRUTH
Join us for a discussion of the graphic novel The Three Escapes of Hannah Arendt: A Tyranny of Truth.

New Yorker cartoonist Ken Krimstein's book shines a light on Hannah Arendt's story through powerful and thoughtful illustrations.
"The astounding life of a 20th-century original as told by a skillful cartoonist frolicking in long form... A compelling performance with great pacing that makes abstruse political theory both intelligible and memorable." - Kirkus (Starred Review)
ABOUT THE PLAY
 
Berlin, 1933. Martial law is in effect and political activism has become a capital crime. Karl Frick, young police officer, gets promoted from the criminal police to the newly created political division. In his first week at this new job he arrests Hannah Stern, a graduate student seen copying documents in the library. Is Mrs. Stern an innocent who pressed a button on the mimeograph machine at the wrong moment? Or is she an enemy of the state?
