The Laugher by Heinrich Böll

- Heinrich Böll’s short story, “The Laugher”, reflects a fictional character whose voice is that of a professional laugher.

Without knowing, or at least understanding, we can never expect ourselves not to allow such atrocities to be committed again. Once such unanswered question is whether or not Adolf Hitler, their “Fuhrer,” planned for the mass execution of millions of Jews or if he just took advantage of the circumstances before him with a deadly fist.
