Ringl+Pit (Grete Stern and Ellen Auerbach)      Bertold Brecht      1935


General, your tank
is a powerful vehicle
it smashes down forests
and crushes a hundred men.
but it has one defect:
it needs a driver.
–Bertolt Brecht, “General, Your Tank Is a Powerful Vehicle”, in “From a German War Primer”,  the Svendborg Poems, 1939
