Bernd  Schmidt  (Editor) - <i>Terror </i>– The Law Needs a Stage


Does human dignity matter, in the face of the terror threat?

Ferdinand von Schirach's play Terror deals with an acutely topical subject: Does human dignity still matter to us, despite the terror threat? Terror is one of the most successful plays of modern times, and the case of the fighter pilot Lars Koch – who shoots down a plane being flown towards a packed football stadium by terrorist hijackers – is now widely discussed in school ethics lessons.

In this anthology, experts examine the political, legal, ethical and artistic questions raised by the play. It includes Ferdinand von Schirach's speech at the opening of the 2017 Salzburg Festival, as well as an in-depth interview with the author.
