THE INTERPRETER by Joseph Vitale
Set at the Nuremberg trials in 1945-46, The Interpreter is the story of the relationship between Hermann Goring – former Reichmarschall of Germany and the leading Nazi on trial for war crimes – and his interpreter, a 23-year-old Jewish U.S. Army Private. Inspired, in part, by the real-life experience of Richard Sonnenfeldt, the chief interpreter at the trials, The Interpreter is a work of theatrical fiction, exploring the strange and complex relationship between the two men.
