Taking sides : der Fall Furtwängler( Visual )

18 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An American officer is sent to interrogate the great German conductor Wilhelm Furtwängler about his support of the Nazi regime during the Third Reich. At a time when other artists were forced to leave Germany or went into voluntary exile in protest, Furtwängler chose to stay behind and continue his career becoming one of the Nazi's foremost cultural assets. In a dramatic confrontation, the US officer goes up against the revered artist, calling into question his moral integrity and his artistic obligations. With the postwar world inclined to forgive and forget the officer's single-minded pursuit of justice makes for a suspenseful, troubling drama, in which the role of the artist in a criminal society is argued forcefully from both sides."--Container
