Irving and Sereny go to war

The feud started nearly 20 years ago with Hitler's War, a massively documented work by the right-wing historian David Irving.

THE CRITICS THEATRE Cartoon characters in search of a laugh

It looks great fun. Felicity Kendal stands centre-stage, in red corset and striped stockings, and pulls a curvy winsome smile. Her fiance, Nicholas Le Prevost, bursts out from behind a yellow door with a red nose and bushy eyebrows. His best friend, Neil Pearson, peers round a green door and focuses a large lascivious eye on Ms Kendal's derriere. Upstage, the Prince of Palestria, Peter Blythe, dances expectantly in his pink long-johns and top hat. Ooh-la-la, you think: this is the essence of French farce. This is Mind Millie For Me.

Theatre Nuremberg: The War Crimes Trial Tricycle, London

This is the 50th anniversary of the Nuremberg Trials, which established the principle that war crimes and crimes against humanity are committed by persons and not by some vague abstraction called the state. Nicolas Kent's gripping, meticulous reconstruction of parts of it at the Tricycle Theatre opens just as another tribunal gets underway at the Hague to hear cases arising from the conflict in the former Yugoslavia.

Hermann Kesten: Obituary

National literatures are peppered with so-called living monuments, last surviving rep- resentatives of this and that, often more dreamed up than verifiable. It is, however, difficult to avoid the conclusion that, with the death of Hermann Kesten, an entire chapter of German literary history really has closed. And not only literary history - Kesten's presence at the points where literature and politics met or, more often, collided derived from his own clear sense that literature needed to be not only written but also promoted, organised and protected.
