Summer, 1954. The Soviet Union is sending its prisoners of war home. Among them is the father of a quiet, football-loving 11-year-old, Matthias, who lives with his mother, sister and brother in a West-German mining town. The boy has long found a surrogate father in the local football player Helmut Rahn, who has "adopted" Matthias as his mascot. The return of the boy's father Richard casts a shadow over the once-happy family: broken by his years in captivity, Richard has trouble adapting to life in post-war Germany and alienates his family through his severity. For Richard, football is pointless, and so is the World Cup that's about to be held in Bern, Switzerland. Matthias, however, longs to be there with his idol, who's been chosen to play on the German team. Through his passion for the game and his fighting spirit, Matthias rekindles a love of life in his dad's heart. And so, as the final match of the World Cup begins, a little miracle of love and generosity leaps across borders to help another miracle occur - the victory of Helmut Rahn and the German team, the miracle of Bern
Baader( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in German and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Andreas Baader is a small-time felon--no more and no less, and his life alternates between doing crimes and getting away with them, doing crimes and getting caught, and going to jail. But in Berlin, he finds himself being recruited for a revolutionary cell, and there is glamor, and there are women, and it is tremendously exciting to stay up all night and talk about overthrowing the state. And yet, somehow, all this talk of overthrowing the state leads to conspiring to--yes, overthrow the state as one of the leaders of a violent political organization. Yet all these young women and men come from comfortable, bourgeois backgrounds, and at some point, many of them were just playing a sexy and dramatic part; it was a party--the festive sort, not the political kind. And now there is no turning back, least of all for Andreas Baader, and this must surely end in his death
