"Mobilized Germany's most talented artists ... to re-create the true story of a Prussian town's rebellion against Napoleon's army of occupation. Laced with anti-Christian symbolism and National Socialist ideology, the film is a mirror of Hitler Germany's own war for survival. In its characterization of Kolberg's besieged citizenry, the epic allegorically reflects the spirit of fanatical resolve to fight on, that Nazi propaganda was attempting to instill in the German population during the final years of World War 2"--Container

"This is the true saga of the anti-Hitler German Army officers' bomb plot of July 20, 1944 that almost killed Nazi Führer Adolf Hitler, and thus very nearly changed the course of World War II ... [In contrast to the reasons behind the plot given in the 2008 Hollywood feature Valkyrie, this film] reveals instead that it was to stop the loss of German lives and the destruction of Germany, and also not to continue the war to a successful conclusion. Thus, it is a more historically accurate film ... Much of the dialogue is lifted straight from historical records."--Container

With the help of a group of Berlin lads, Emil hunts down the thief and is given a big reward. For the film, Erich Kästner's book was re-set in 1950s West Germany, where the scars left by the World War II and the birth of the country's economic miracle make their mark on the story and the film's imagery

Der Freischutz by Carl Maria von Weber( Recording )

4 editions published between 1988 and 1995 in German and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wagner said this early-Romantic gem was the most German of German operas. Its irresistible mix of colorful folklore, the spooky supernatural, a tender romance, and the passionate struggle between good and evil are all captured in Weber's tuneful and dramatic score. The cast in this rare U.S. performance is sensational: Sándor Kónya as our hero, the forester Max, who must win a shooting contest in order to marry his beloved Agathe (the ravishing Pilar Lorengar), despite the dark plotting of Caspar (Gerd Feldhoff)
Geschlossene Gesellschaft by Jean-Paul Sartre( Visual )

Im Sommer 2010 beherrschte der Missbrauch an der Odenwaldschule die deutschen Medien und Feuilletons. Es schien, als ob die deutsche Öffentlichkeit aufarbeiten wollte, was sie elf Jahre lang versäumt hatte: Dem nachzuforschen, was seit November 1999 durch einen Artikel in der Frankfurter Rundschau bekannt war. Niemand stellte sich damals der Frage, weshalb gerade an der Heppenheimer Vorzeigeschule Lehrer über Jahrzehnte hinweg Schüler missbrauchen konnten, weshalb so viele davon wussten und sich trotzdem nichts änderte. Mittlerweile weiß man von mindestens 132 Missbrauchsfällen an der Odenwaldschule seit 1969. Die Dunkelziffer liegt weit darüber, weil viele Betroffene bis heute nicht darüber sprechen können oder wollen. Zum ersten Mal beantworten Hauptverantwortliche für die sogenannte "Vertuschung" von 1998/99 vor der Kamera diese Fragen. Betroffene erzählen ihre Geschichte. Altschüler, die als Jugendliche Zeugen des Missbrauchs wurden, berichten, warum sie 30 Jahre lang schwiegen. GESCHLOSSENE GESELLSCHAFT ist ein Film über menschliches Versagen und das kolossale Scheitern am eigenen Ideal. (Quelle: www.goodmovies.de)

"One day, writer Lutz Ventura receives news that his sister has died. She leaves behind two children, whom he temporarily takes in after the funeral because Frau Roeckel, the sister of the children's father, deceased five years earlier, is taking a holiday with her husband. Lutz and the children become good friends. The children want to stay with their uncle, but he does not have much room in his tower apartment, has little money, and wants to get married soon. The children must return to the Roeckel family, but they run away, because there is always trouble there. The soft-hearted uncle takes them in, but his fiancée has definite ideas about their future, and they don't include other people's children. On the spur of the moment, she tells him that she no longer wants to marry him. The writer gets in trouble with the authorities; the children are not allowed to live with him since he is an unmarried man. The situation escalates as the child welfare authorities require the niece and nephew to be ready for transfer to an orphanage that evening. Lutz goes to the parish priest and explains to him his new idea to seek sanctuary in order to make the public aware of his problem. The priest rejects this but secretly talks to Margot, Lutz's fiancé. She tells the priest that she had been waiting for an opportunity to change her mind and the couple is married on the same day." --Wikipedia

Die Geschichte vom Soldaten = The soldier's tale = Histoire du soldat by Igor Stravinsky( Recording )

3 editions published in 1975 in German and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Im Schweizer Exil, wo er nach der russischen Revolution Zuflucht gesucht hatte, wollte Strawinski ein Musiktheater schreiben, das von einer großen Opernbühne unabhängig war und auch auf einer Wanderbühne aufgeführt werden konnte. So entstand in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Schriftsteller Charles F. Ramuz nach einem Märchen aus der russischen Volksdichtung die Geschichte vom Soldaten, der seine Geige (seine Seele) dem Teufel verkauft hat, sie in der Liebe zu einer Prinzessin beinahe wieder findet und doch vom Teufel geholt wird, weil er alles haben will. Das Werk, eines der brillantesten des Komponisten, wird vom Merlin-Ensemble kongenial interpretiert. "Alle Rollen des Stücks - Soldat, Teufel, Prinzessin, Erzähler - werden von der hinreißenden Lore Brunner gesprochen, mit mundartlichen Einfärbungen, in perfekter Abstimmung auf die Musik ... Lore Brunner ... spricht ein Märchen für Erwachsene und verzaubert sie im Verbund mit der Musik zu Kindern"
