The debut of Marga Minco (pseudonym of Sara Menco, 1920-).

¶ Translation of a fragment from a contemporary Dutch book review (by Gerrit Kouwenaar): "[The] historical drama Marga Minco manages to live up to in a literary way by rendering the special so simplified that it is transferred to a general plan, which in fact is no longer tied to a certain time - the only plan that, strangely enough, therefore stands up against time, human forgetfulness and the uncanny logic of so-called realistic politicians."
