This article draws emphasis on two key aspects crucial for the interpretation of George Tabori's play "Mein Kampf": Tabori's distortion of historical theme in the dramatic form of a farce and his play with the relationship between the two protagonists. In addition to that, the article suggests three reasons for the positive criticism the adaptation of this play received in Zagreb in 1989: traditional popularity of farce in Zagreb theatres; parallels between the text and the social and political situation in Yugoslavia at the time as well as parallels between Tabori's drama and new models in Croatian contemporary drama of the 1980s.
