"The play is written in 14 lessons, reminiscent of the Stations of the Cross, each character going through the 14 stages of the Calvary, understood as the history of the 20th century. What happened in Auschwitz is sacred; Following that episode, the history of the world could not be the same. Millions of innocent people were killed there. The sin of the world can only be redeemed through the death of the lamb. In the play, the people committing the crime do not realize what they are doing, that their actions are evil." (Bocsárdi László)
