The war had thrown people onto the streets. The era of plight was also an era of women. Now that the war was over, everyone execrated it, and nobody had wanted it in the first place. With his play "Mother Courage", Bertolt Brecht staged a woman's fate in the German Theater in Berlin in 1949. Rarely did a theater play reflect the mood of so many people out there. The sutler Courage wanted to do business with the war. Which is why her basket turned out so voraciously large. But in the end, she lost it all. Little people are not made to profit from the war. When picturing Mother Courage, it is always the gaunt face of Helene Weigel people believe to be seeing. In how many performances did she carry that basket? It traveled from the stage into the Museum of German History and from there to Buckow in Märkische Schweiz to the Brecht-Weigel House.
