In 1940s Washington, D.C., Fanny Farrelly is expecting the arrival of her daughter Sara, Sara’s German husband Kurt, and their children who have fled Europe due to Kurt’s role in the anti-Nazi resistance movement. When a Nazi-supporter houseguest discovers Kurt’s identity, he threatens to expose him. Published in 1941 by activist Lillian Hellman, Watch on the Rhine is a timely examination of moral obligation and sacrifice.
