This incident drove Euripides to write "The Trojan women." Against the background of the sacking of Troy by the Greeks, he created a timeless indictment of the horror and futility of all wars. The story consists of three major episodes, each centering on the fate of one of the captive women: Cassandra, Andromache, and Helen. The three are linked by the central character, Hecuba, queen of Troy, who heroically withstands the tragic events. 1 videocassette (VHS) (105 min.)
