    Morton Rhue’s The Wave has become classic literature throughout central Europe. It is based on a true story in an American high school in 1969 in which a teacher through an experiment attempted to demonstrate firsthand to the pupils how the institution of fascism became so popular in the III- Reich. The pupils were forced to dress in a certain way, come punctually to class every day and to feel part of a group of equals. The former outcasts soon felt integrated into the organization. The pupils were also encouraged to recruit members of other classes into the group known as The Wave and soon the whole school became involved. Those not wishing to take part were chastised and even physically tormented. Within one short week the experiment had gotten out of hand.

    You have to understand that this experiment can’t go any further than I let it go. The whole basis for The Wave is the idea of a group willing to follow their leader. As long as I’m involved in this, I can assure you that it can’t get out of hand.
