1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After Hitler took over power in 1933, many Jewish artists were forced to leave Germany. Wilhelm Furtwängler chose to stay, serving as one of Germany's foremost cultural assets. Though never a member of the Party, Furtwängler was the recipient of government honors and appointments associated with Party members. However, the conductor often used his position and contacts to save hundreds of Jewish musicians from the concentration camp. When Major Steve Arnold (Harvey Keitel) is given the task of carrying out pre-trial investigations against Furtwängler, his aim is to prove that the conductor's artistic genius contributed to the Nazi propaganda machine and their destructive ideology. Conversely, Furtwängler insists he chose to stay to bring comfort to the German people with his music. Taking Sides is that rare film that demands the audience to take a position on an issue: in this case, the complicity or innocence of Wilhelm Furtwängler"--Container
