A Worker reads History

Hello Everybody,

I'm currently working with Bertolt Brecht's poem translated in English as
"A Worker reads History", and I need the original in German.

Electronic translators offer this translation "Ein Arbeiter liest Geschichte", but nothing appears in the search engines with that title. My German is extremely poor and thus cannot think of alternate translations.

Can somebody tell me what the original name of this poem is? It's a very famous one, that deals with the lack of acknowledgement given to workers and people who actually build cities, win battles, etc.

    Hi theaOMe :)

    If I remember correctly, the title is "Fragen eines lesenden Arbeiters". Just a minute... Yes, that's what my Bertolt Brecht poem book says.
